Abstract

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) consists of three imaging systems: a Wide Angle Camera (WAC) and two Narrow Angle Cameras (NACs). Since entering lunar orbit in June of 2009, LROC has collected over 700,000 images. A subset of WAC images were reduced into a global morphologic basemap, a near-global digital elevation model, and multitemporal movie sequences that characterize illumination conditions of the polar regions. In addition, NAC observations were reduced to meter scale maps and digital elevation models of select regions of interest. These Reduced Data Record (RDR) products were publicly released through NASA's Planetary Data System to aid scientists and engineers in planning future lunar missions and addressing key science questions.
