Abstract : Using the methods described in AD-262 889 and AD-460 485, the Army Map Service in cooperation with the Aeronautical Chart and Information Center completed the Department of Defense (DOD) Selenodetic Control System 1966. A listing of the 734 points which constitute the DOD-66 is included. The average point was measured on nine photographic plates. The rms horizontal and vertical uncertainties (precision) of the solution are plus or minus 972 and plus or minus 751 meters, respectively. The crater coordinates were compared point-by-point with other selenodetic systems. In each comparison, the rms differences, both horizontal and vertical, were less than the expected rms differences computed from the corresponding variances. Maximum rms differences approached plus or minus 1500 meters.
