Overview    

See Getting Started for a quick overview of the Jules Verne Voyager map tool capabilities.

For items specific to voyaging Earth's Moon, continue to read this Earth's Moon Features Help page.

To learn how to use the grd, gmt, geo, lbl, vel, mon, msc, and/or opt codes to customize a starting view, see Advanced Help: URL customizing.


Voyager Earth's Moon features     The default Moon uses a surface imagery mosaic from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) by NASA and the Arizona State University (ASU).

The texture underlay grids available in the [Features:] menu of Voyager: Earth's Moon are:

[LRO LROC WAC b/w surface]  http://jules.unavco.org/Earth/Moon grd = 2   LRO Camera, Wide Area Camera, lunar surface in greytone
[LRO LOLA: topography]  http://jules.unavco.org/Earth/Moon?grd=3 grd = 3   LRO Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter, shaded topograpy
[Clementine: surface]  http://jules.unavco.org/Earth/Moon?grd=41 grd = 41   Clementine orbiter mosaic of lunar surface
[Clementine: topography]  http://jules.unavco.org/Earth/Moon?grd=39 grd = 39   color-scaled topography, derived from Clementine LIDAR data; no constrained data at latitudes greater than ~78°
[Clementine: geoid]  http://jules.unavco.org/Earth/Moon?grd=44 grd = 44   geoid model, derived from Clementine data
[Clementine: crustal thickness]  http://jules.unavco.org/Earth/Moon?grd=45 grd = 45   crustal thickness, derived from Clementine data
[Clementine: free air gravity]  http://jules.unavco.org/Earth/Moon?grd=46 grd = 46   free-air gravity model, derived from Clementine data
[Clementine: Bouguer gravity]  http://jules.unavco.org/Earth/Moon?grd=47 grd = 47   Bouguer gravity model, derived from Clementine data

The standard image overlays available in the [Features:] menu for optional longitude and latitude marking or distance scale bars are explained Advanced Help: generic options.
