A new mapping method could help explore the Moon, Mars and beyond

Researchers have discovered a method to create high-resolution maps of planetary surfaces like that of the moon by combining available imagery and topographic data.

Mapping the complex and diverse surface of such a world The moon in detailed resolution is challenging because laser altimeters, which measure changes in elevation, operate at a much lower resolution than cameras. And although the photographs offer a sense of surface features, it is difficult to translate the images into specific heights and depths.
