1. On-screen version (PNG)
2. Print/on-screen version (PDF)
The PDF version allows for good print quality up to the size of B0 (1 × 1.4 m). Text elements retain a vector character, which guarantees the highest precision, they can also be searched using search engines built into PDF or WWW browsers (usually Ctrl + F).
The Moon Map contains layers that allow you to turn off the view of labels and the coordinate grid using the PDF viewer, and obtain a clean, photographic image of the Moon.
The bitmap presenting the surface of the Moon reaches a resolution of 150 dpi when printed in B0 size. This allows you to obtain a good quality detail using large-format plotter printing with a resolution of 360 and even 720 dpi. Objects in the file are saved in the RGB color space.
The PDF version is complemented by a glossary of Latin-English names, summary of the basic physical and orbital characteristics and a list of selected missions that successfully reached the lunar surface.
Alternatively you can also download the graphics prepared for the PDF version as a high-resolution bitmap (5039 × 7126 px, 5.9 mb)
The Moon Map includes English names of maria-like formations (ocean, sea, lake, bay and marsh), marked in yellow. I did not translate all proper names, such as the names of ancient figures with English equivalents, or the names of some mountain ranges. I figured it would be a random choice, introducing additional chaos.
The Map uses images collected by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (NASA). I typed all the names by hand, and typos are my specialty, so I probably did not avoid them here. If you notice mistakes, have comments, suggestions – pleas write !
The Moon Map is provided „as is” without warranty of any kind.
