A computer search was performed on all useable Mariner 10 images of Mercury for which refined camera positions and orientations are available. Over 2000 valid stereo pairs have been found. The results of this search allowed us to construct a map illustrating the available stereo coverage and the corresponding stereo height accuracy across the surface of Mercury. Examples are given to illustrate the quality of the available stereo pairs and the resulting digital elevation models.
