The Moon

Maps from the Lunar Prospector
The 1024x512 textures below were generated by scaling up the 800x400 cylindrical projection images provided on the Web by the NASA Ames/LP Science team. See

Lunar Prospector's Gravity Maps
The 1024x512 texture maps below were generated by scaling up 800x400 pixel "simple cylindrical projection" maps provided on the Web by Washington University (St.Louis)'s Earth & Planetary Remote Sensing Laboratory on their PDS GeoSciences Node and their NASA Planetary Data System Geophysics Subnode See the page
