Lunar Product Derived from the LOLA archive of the PDS Imaging Node

The Astropedia Annex is a new data portal in development by the NASA/USGS PDS Imaging Node to support scientists who use PDS image data to create derived geospatial products registered to a solid planetary body. Examples of geospatial derived products are cartographic and thematic maps of moons and planets, local and regional geologic feature maps, topographic and perspective views of planetary landing sites, and tabular data containing unit information derived from planetary data. Many of these products have been developed as a result of NASA data analysis programs, often years after active missions (and their accumulating archives) have ended.
