Lat: 27.96°N, Long: 47.61°W, Diam: 7.05 km, Depth: 1.3 km, Rükl: 18
AS15-M-2481 Toscanelli is in the center. The 6-km crater to its upper left is Wollaston N. The rilles are part of Rimae Aristarchus, and the shadow-casting scarp visible at bottom center, and extending north through Toscanelli itself is the northern part of Rupes Toscanelli.

- Depth data from Kurt Fisher database
- Westfall, 2000: 1.3 km
- Toscanelli is listed as a control point in the 1994 and 2005 ULCN where its coordinates are given as Lat: 27.930°N, Long: 47.612°W. Coordinates of Lat: 27.94°N, Long: 47.62°W, Diam: 7.0 km were adopted for use in the IAU Planetary Gazetteer on June 12, 2008. The old position listed there was 0.5° to the south. Toscanelli is one of the first craters for which an attempt has been made to give a selenodetically correct position in the gazetteer (as opposed to one just adequate for identification). The IAU coordinates were subsequently adjusted slightly to conform to the LOLA system. - Jim Mosher
- Named for Paolo Dal Pozza Toscanelli (1397-1482), an Italian doctor and cartographer.
- This replacement name for a formerly lettered crater first appeared on LTO-39A4. - Jim Mosher
