dc.description.abstract This map is based on data released by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA). The map is centered at -87°S, 0°E and shows the LOLA 20-m elevation product (NASA Goddard Space Flight Center; Smith et al., 2010; Smith et al., 2017). The elevation data are overlain on a derived hillshade with solar azimuth 45°W and solar elevation 45°. Permanently shaded Regions (PSRs) larger than 10 km2 digitized by Arizona State University and determined by Mazarico et al. (2011) are shown with hatch markings. 1000-m elevation contours (relative to global radius) are shown as white lines with elevations marked (black numbers). Spot elevations are labeled in white. Polar stereographic projection is used with scale true at the pole. Selected feature names are included on the map. en
