Google Moon Update (Map & Charts)

Google Moon Update (minus the cheese)

Google Moon Updated

  • Higher Resolution Images
  • Moon 'Walk' View
  • No Cheese (was on max zoom - Wallace & Gromit ate it all?)

Data/Map Types:

Visible - A mosaic of images taken by the Clementine mission. This is a black-and-white version of what you would see if you were in orbit around the moon. This composite imagery was prepared by the USGS.
Elevation - A lunar terrain map generated by the USGS in conjunction with the The Unified Lunar Control Network 2005, and shaded using an airbrushed shaded relief map. This map is colour-coded by altitude, so you can use the colour key at the lower left to estimate elevations.
Apollo - A collection of place marks that tell the story of the Apollo missions that landed on the moon. This includes stories, quotes, images, panoramas, audio clips, and links to videos of the astronauts' adventures on the lunar surface.
Charts - A collection of geological and topographic charts of various regions of the moon.

Look at the 'Terms of Use'

NASA World Wind is a big download, only really available to the Map/GIS orientated user.

This is more for Joe Public (the masses).
