Mercury databases

My research has resulted in the most extensive databases of sites on Mercury hosting hollows and putative explosive volcanism yet published, which can be found as supplementary material in Thomas et al. Icarus, 2014 and Thomas et al. JGR: Planets, 2014.

I have since extended these databases on the basis of data released up to March 2015, and CSV files of these new databases can be downloaded from the links below. These provide the site ID, central latitude and longitude and geodesic area for each grouping of the landform type.
