During the Clementine Mission both oblique and vertical multispectral images were collected. The oblique and vertical images from a single spectral band collected during the same orbit form a stereo pair that can be used to derive the topography. These stereo pairs were used to derive the topography of an area surrounding the lunar South Pole (90°S - 64°S latitude) and North Pole (90°N - 64°N latitude). In addition, during the Clementine mission laser altimeter data were collected. A goal was to match the photogrammetric topographic data to the topographic data collected by the laser altimeter. This required developing some innovative techniques to deal with mismatches between the photogrammetric topographic data set and the laser altimetry topographic data.
