All Maps Are Good
image by Chuck Wood from Lunar Maps
LPOD likes maps. Since its beginning in 2004 there have been 63 LPODs that featured maps of the Moon. These have not been indexed and were not easy to find, until now. I have compiled a new page for the Moon-Wiki that lists all the maps, atlases and globes with links to their LPOD descriptions. Stepping through the chronologically arranged list also is a quick course in the history of lunar cartography. This now is probably the largest published resource on lunar maps. But there are more to add. Let me know of ones that are missing.
Spent hours compiling this list!
Yesterday's LPOD: What Makes Mountains?
Tomorrow's LPOD: CEB & DEB
