Do you lack basic drafting skills? So did Mary Blagg back in the 1930s, but she penciled the official lunar map for the International Astronomical Union that was the last graphical word on lunar nomenclature until the mid-1960s when the Digital Atlas of the Moon. This document is the first (mostly) unambiguous nomenclature map of the Moon ever published.
