Abstract
This paper presents the production of digital terrain models (DTMs) and digital image mosaics (DIMs) of the Lunar surface that cover a large portion of the near-side of the Moon at 40 m/px and 10 m/px respectively. These data products, produced under direction of the NASA ESMD Lunar Mapping and Modeling Project (LMMP), are based on 2600 stereo image pairs from the Apollo 15 and 16 missions that were digitized at high resolution from the original mission films. Our reconstruction was carried out using the highly automated Ames Stereo Pipeline software, which runs on NASA’s Pleiades supercomputer.
