For imagery, there is quite a lot of information out there:

High-resolution Atlases of Mimas, Tethys, and Iapetus derived from Cassini-ISS images is a journal article that discusses how the authors created mosaics for some of Saturn's moons. Wikipedia has a handful of articles discussing extra-terrestrial quadrangles with lots of external links (There's more that can be search here):

Because of the government shutdown, the USGS references are unavailable, which might have pointed to GIS implementation.

    Once the US government open up again, search for PIGWAD. – mkennedy Oct 13 '13 at 23:22
