Because Isabel's location is immediately north-northeast of Diophantus, all orbital Apollo photos of Isabel should be online in the LPI's list of Diophantus. However, this list needs further exploration and investigation because not all of the mentioned frames show the Diophantus-Isabel area! - DannyCaes Jun 30, 2012

Isabel is a somewhat irregularly shaped crater that has received a name only by virtue of its having been labeled on a Topophotomap, and the subsequent adoption of those names by the IAU.

- According to NASA RP-1097, "Isabel" is a Minor Feature whose name was originally intended only for use in connection with Topophotomap 39B2/S1(on which it is plotted).
- The position and dimensions given in the title line are from that topophotomap as read by LTVT. The depth was read from the highest point on the rim to the lowest point on the floor. On the topophotomap, that deepest point is indicated as falling at 28.162N/34.089W. The official IAU values listed in the Planetary Gazetteer database are: Lat: 28.2°N, Long: 34.1°W, Diam: 1 km.
- The other Minor Features labeled on Topophotomap 39B2/S1 are Samir, Louise and Walter.
