Gioja Crater   Leave a comment

A meshlab image of Gioja Crater, south of Byrd Crater near the North Pole of the Moon, 83.3 degrees north, 2 degrees east, 41km diameter.  Derived from 100 meter resolution data produced by the LOLA science team. I ran a new calculation of the poles at 100 meter resolution.  A 10 degree by 10 degree area at 100 meter resolution was divided into six tiles (this is a closeup of one of them), each 2000 x 3000 pixels.  The reduced resolution strips start to pop when compared to an overhead view of the region.

WAC camera overhead view.

An iphone photo of a 10″ x 15″ 3D model of the north pole, from the data that generated the image at the top of the post The long dimension is foreshortened here; the tile is ten inches wide.
