A new earth-based lunar radar altimetry map is now available: http://pds-geosciences.wustl.edu/missions/lram/index.htm


This dataset contains digital elevation models (DEMs) of the lunar south pole. Elevation data at 200 pixels per degree of latitude (~150 m spatial resolution) were obtained with radar interferometry from the Goldstone Solar System Radar and calibrated with Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter laser altimetry data.


The data were provided by Michael Busch and Jean-Luc Margot of the University of California, Los Angeles, and archived by the PDS Geosciences Node.
