I'm trying to find hi-res imagery data for the moon, both near and far side. So far my searches haven't really come up with anything, except raw Clementine data, but that's in some obscure format <_<

Any advice?

I can volunteer for an image acquisition mission. (if you pay)

Okay, here's how we'll do it. You take your camera, hold your breath and I'll launch you into lunar orbit... ;)

What resolution is high-res? I know I have seen maps that people have stitched together for the whole moon, see for instance the links here:
XPlanet planetary image maps

(as a true map geek, I have had xplanet running on as my desktop wallpaper for a long time, with hourly updated eartquakes and clouds - but now I just have a black wallpaper)

Take peek at the links on thate page, and maybe you can look at what their sources are, if you need even higher res.

Hugo,

What resolution is high-res?


I was thinking of at least 8000px along the equator... :unsure:

Ah, found what I was looking for. Thanks for the links!

Have a look at:

http://moon.google.com/

Might not be exactly what you are looking for but if you zoom all the way in you can see what the moon is really made of!
