Frequently Asked Questions

Which web browsers are able to display the maps?

The maps are displayed using HTML 5 / Javascript. Almost all modern web browsers support this, though the code is quite CPU intensive and probably won't run well on mobile devices.

The maps will not display on Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 and earlier, as these browsers do not support HTML5.

Where did the data come from?

These maps are based on a digital elevation model (DEM) is based on data from the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA; Smith et al., 2010), an instrument on the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA) Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft (Tooley et al., 2010).
