By mapping the lunar surface at large solar incidence angles (>50°), LROC creates high-precision morphologic maps, which are crucial for systematic geologic mapping and crater counting.
The crater density for a given region is highly correlated with its age, thus, morphologic maps can be used to infer the age of a region. radius used to define the maps scale is 1737.4 km (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Project Lunar Geodesy and Cartography Working Group, 2008; Archinal and others, 2011).
Converting stereo images from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter into 3D maps of the Moon's surface. This tool seamlessly combines the data so that users can generate their own image mosaics, chemical maps, and topographic maps of any region on the lunar surface. Product Information: This is a colorized shaded-relief of a original polar digital elevation model (DEM) from the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA; Smith et al., 2010), an instrument on the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA) Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft (Tooley et al., 2010).
Lunar Atlases The Lunar Orbiter Photo Gallery is an extensive collection of over 2,600 high- and moderate-resolution photographs produced by all five of the Lunar Orbiter missions.
Among the latest products is a global map with a resolution of 100 meters per pixel from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC).
