First-Ever Comprehensive Geologic Map of the Moon

For the first time, the entire surface of the moon has been completely mapped & uniformly classified by scientists from the USGS Astrogeology Science Center.

In collaboration with NASA and the lunar planetary institute.

The lunar map is called the โ€œunified geologic map of the moonโ€.

The digital map shows the moonโ€™s geology in incredible detail (1:5,000,000 scale).

It will serve as the definitive blueprint of the moonโ€™s surface geology for future human missions.
