  • The systematic examination of lunar surface characteristics is entering a new phase requiring detailed measurements of position for purposes of cartography, surface and near-surface navigation, and correlation and data reduction of scientific experiments, such as gravimetry, active seismology, geological sampling, etc.A method of obtaining selenographic positions is described in this paper, and an example of the technique is presented.
