Abstract : With the advent of the space age and subsequent studies suggesting the possibility of landings on the moon the requirements for a topographic lunar map became apparent. This report describes the steps taken by the Army Map Service, Corps of Engineers, U. S. Army, to prepare such a map, in two sheets, of the visible surface at a scale of 1:5,000,000 with 1000-meter contours (plus 500-meter auxiliary contours) on a modified stereographic projection.
