The Gazetteer of Planetary Nomenclature now defaults to the Vesta cartographic coordinate system recommended by the IAU Working Group on Cartographic Coordinates and Rotational Elements. The Claudia coordinate system is available until May 2014 via a drop down menu on the feature pages. For more information on coordinate systems used on Vesta, see Body-Fixed Coordinate Systems for Asteroid (4) Vesta.
