Orthographic Atlas of the Moon
Arthur and Whitaker: Orthographic Atlas of the Moon (1960)(glossary entry)
As the full title explains, this is the first of four supplements to the LPL's original Photographic Lunar Atlas.
- This work consists of the best photos for each of the 44 fields in the earlier atlas overprinted with the rectangular xi-eta grid (adjusted to the correct librations for the photo) at a spacing of 0.01 lunar radius, and in the "Air Force" edition with colored lines of latitude and longitude at intervals of 2°. The work was primarily preformed by the LPL, but the ACIC assisted in computing the grids.
