Lunar orbiter digitization and cartographic processing

December 19, 2001

Digitization and cartographic processing of 5 Lunar Orbiter (LO) IV frames (109H, 110H, 114H, 115H, and 114M) are now complete, and these data are available online at http://wwwflag.wr.usgs.gov/USGSFlag/Space/LunarOrbiter/lunorbWebtop.html. Coverage ofthese data extends from Eratosthenes crater on the west to Mare Serenitatis in the east, and from Aristoteles crater in the north to Rima Hyginus in the south. Geologic features in this area encompass a wide variety of lunar units, processes, and ages, and they include parts of the Apennine Mountains, the KREEP-rich Apennine Bench Formation, Rima Bode pyroclastics (Figure 1), Mare Vaporum, Sulpicius Gallus, and the Imbrium basin ejecta southeast of the basin rim. These data products demonstrate our capability for digitizing and cartographically processing the LO data.
