A Global Catalog LU1319373 of Lunar Craters (≥ 1 km)

A global crater catalog LU1319373 that includes approximately 1.32 million lunar craters with diameters ≥ 1 km. The crater catalog also include 3D morphometric data on the craters.

This version of the crater catalog LU1319373 includes the following information for each crater:

  • Longitude and latitude coordinates of the center;
  • Crater diameter;
  • Crater depth.

The lunar crater catalog LU1319373 can be downloaded from here.

Rock Measurements at Zhurong Landing Site on Mars

The dataset includes ortho-image mosaics and rock measurements at the Zhurong landing site on Sols 3-6 and Sol 40.

The ortho-image mosaics were generated by photogrammetric processing of the stereo images taken by the Navigation and Terrain Camera (NaTeCam) onboard the Zhurong rover. Based on the ortho-image mosaics, rocks (≥ 5 cm) were measured with their diameters and areas, which indicated a rock abundance of ~ 5% at the Zhurong landing site. Details can be found in the related publication (Chen et al., 2022).

The dataset can be downloaded from here.
