Digital image mosaic and topographic map of the moon released

14 April 2015

Digital versions of the Image Mosaic and Topographic Map of the Moon have been released. The USGS Scientific Investigations Map 3316 (SIM3316) highlights both the LROC Team's global WAC mosaic and three of the LOLA Team's digital elevation models. For each map, lunar names (nomenclature) were carefully placed by our production team at the Astrogeology Science Center. In the coming month, the two layouts will be sent off for printing and hardcopies will be made available from Astrogeology and the USGS Store. To print your own copy (and eventually find hardcopies), please visit:

These maps were made possible by NASA, the  Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera team, and the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter team. Funding was provided by by NASA's Planetary Geology and Geophysics Cartography Program.
