LunarMap HD

LunarMap HD


Moon maps galore! Scroll, zoom and search through high resolution US Geological Survey and NASA maps. LunarMap HD is fun for anybody who wants to see and know more about earth's lovely satellite and is a great companion for amateur astronomy observations through a telescope.

Features of LunarMap HD include
- Nearside and farside of the moon
- Realistic US Geological Survey relief map (5120x5120 resolution)
- Beautiful photographic maps from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter's Wide Angle Camera (20480x20480)
- Color-coded topological maps from both the USGS and NASA
- Realtime terminator (shadow) line
- Searchable labels for over 8950 craters, maria, mountains, valleys, Apollo landing sites and more, based on International Astronomical Union data; tap on feature for more information or to lookup in Wikipedia
- Rotate and/or flip the map to match your telescope's eyepiece view, or for users in the southern hemisphere
- Zoom with two fingers (multitouch devices only), on-screen buttons or volume keys
- Customize colors, labels shown and other features
- Optionally lock screen rotation or make it harder to change so you need to turn the device further than usual to rotate to prevent accidental screen rotations while observing
- The maps are 2D. The nearside maps are projected to show a small portion of the farside, since libration can reveal a small portion of the farside

Note: To save app download time, maps other than the USGS relief nearside map involve an additional free in-app download, hence the Internet permission.

Terrific Knocks the spots off any lunar atlas I've ever used. With the LRO map installed you can zoom in on any feature and get a higher resolution image than you are likely to find in any lunar guide book.

Excellent Lunar Charts Many high resolution charts available for download. Nice software for lunar observers.

Zeeshan I loved the lite version, so I purchased the HD version too. No doubt it is amazing! But the main reason for which I purchased the HD version was that I wanted to see the terminator in real time, which comes across as a bland thin outline over the moon in this app...it was a disappointment. I had expected that the terminator would actually divide the moon into night and day halves.. Request the developers to show the exact phase of the moon in real time, that would be amazing!!

Like "Virtual Moon Atlas" but for mobile. This is great, but in using it I found one thing not working right, and that is the distance scale slide values are off by an order of magnitude. Copernicus is depicted as only about 10km across, rather than the actual 100km. Otherwise a good app.
