Small Features with Personal Names

The IAU has recognized the names of a number of small features that have been given personal names from a number of languages used around the world. The USGS has used these names in a set of topographic orthophotomosaic maps at 1:250,000 scale (each map covers about 4 degrees in latitude and 5 degrees in longitude). These maps are based on high-resolution photography taken from the Command Module in Apollo missions. Because of mission constraints, the map centers range from 26 degrees south and 28 degrees north latitude and from 57.5 west to 172.5 east longitude (with some gaps in coverage) and the coordinates of these features are similarly limited. The data source is the Gazetteer of Planetary Nomenclature of the USGS Astrogeology Research Program.


The features whose names are in bold print are identified in the annotated photos in this book and appear in the Feature Name Index in this CD.
If the reader has a relative or friend with one of these personal names (“first names” in most cases), they might be pleased to know that they have a namesake on the Moon.
