Abstract : The method used for determining the apparent positions of objects on lunar photographis is outlined in detail. A possible scheme is suggested for combining these apparent positions to obtain absolute positions and heights of the features. A list of approximate coordinates of 960 points selected is given, together with a list of plate material available at the present time. (Author)
