Ten Years of NAC Imaging: Fun Visualization!

June 18, 2019

This week the LROC team looked back on ten years of lunar exploration at the Planetary Data Workshop, in Flagstaff, AZ. For this presentation, two 80+ GiB montages were created from NAC images collected from first light on 30 June 2009 until 17 June 2019. During a talk one can only give a small glimpse into the entire image, so we are posting the two images here allowing anyone to explore this fun visual and get a sense of just how large is the LROC dataset.
