Archimedes Crater   Leave a comment

Oblique view of Archimedes Crater.  Using a 512 pixel-per-degree dataset (SLDEM from Map-A-Planet-2) I produced an stl file of LAC 41.  It was necessary to downsample the dataset by 3, for a 177 meter-per-pixel resolution.  Archimedes is 81 kilometers in diameter, or 457 pixels, which shows quite a bit of detail, especially when you zoom in.  Snapshot from Meshlab with a little contrast adjustment in Photoshop.

The view from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter:
