Catalogue Note

A striking and extraordinarily detailed map of the near side of the moon, revealing in vivid color the incredibly varied geological features of the lunar surface. Prepared on behalf of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in cooperation with the USAF Aeronautical Chart and Information Center, and done as part of the Department of the Interior's United States Geological Survey for their Geologic Atlas of the moon, the map was based on the results of the telescopic mapping program as well as on data provided by the unmanned lunar exploration program, in particular the regional coverage of Lunar Orbiter IV.
