The Moon, near side

Expect stunning vistas, infinite line of sight and zero fresh air. Bring a space suit.

The map is based on the 3.6 gigapixel image of the near side of the moon taken by the Lunar Reconnaisance Orbiter Camera. Topological annotations taken from Gazetteer of Planetary Nomenclature by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) Working Group for Planetary System Nomenclature (WGPSN). The resolution is 100 meters per pixel.
