LROC’s Wide Angle Camera makes stereo observations by imaging the same area during at least two orbits. The apparent difference in positions of features when viewed along different lines of sight is measured and converted into elevation data. This topographic map is centered on Orientale, the youngest of the large lunar impact basins.
