3D Map of the Moon, Solar System Space Artwork

Description

ABOUT THE MAP:  Using high-resolution data from NASA, this map was created to visualize the mysterious and fascinating terrain on the surface of the moon.

The colors in the terrain illustrate the elevations (Darkest blues=lowest points to Whites=mid-terrain height, Dark Greys=highest terrain height.)

The map intricately labels each crater, lunar sea, and Apollo landing locations, including the first landing of Apollo 11.

This new map reveals the moon's sensational topography riddled with craters, canyons, and seas. The map was created from point elevation data and then transformed into contours to reveal the ground elevation on the bright side of the moon. Every contour and color in this image illustrates the shape and elevation of the natural landscape.

Created by Professionals: The map was created and produced by a professional Geographer / Research Scientist using data gathered by NASA. The map is created with highly accurate data and interpolated with professional GIS mapping software.

As once quoted by Leonardo da Vinci:  Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.  
Simplicity also brings forth complexity. The patterns on the moon reveal the formation and history of the moon's terrain.

3D Map: In this map, you can also explore the terrain in 3D using Chomadepth glasses. The artwork looks great on its own but uses the glasses to reveal the height of the peaks and surface in relation to the depths of the craters.

It is fun and fascinating for all ages. When on display, this map grabs people's attention the most as folks enjoy exploring the image in 3D.
