New Planetary Map Museum

February 2, 2016

The Digital Museum of Planetary Mapping has opened today. The museum serves as both virtual exhibition halls and a database for researchers of planetary cartography. The museum currently has 222 drawings, maps and globes from the 17th century to 2015 and includes planetary maps in Latin, English, Chinese, Japanese, Russian and many other languages. It also includes full resolution digital copies of the lunar maps produced in the Soviet Union during the 1960-1980s.
