The Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) on-board Cassini took a few high-resolution images of the icy Saturnian satellites Mimas and Enceladus over the last seven years of the Cassini mission during non-targeted flybys. We used the new Mimas images to improve the existing semi-controlled mosaic of Mimas. A new controlled Enceladus mosaic was published recently (Bland et al., 2015; Bland et al. in prep.). Both new mosaics are the baseline for improved atlases of Mimas in three tiles with a map scale of 1:1,000,000 and Enceladus in 15 tiles with a map scale of 1:400,000. The nomenclature for both satellites was proposed by the Cassini-ISS team and approved by the IAU.
