Permanently shadowed craters near the poles of the Moon may contain substantial ice deposits. The USGS is supporting the search for this ice by producing high precision cartographic products from data collected by the NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). These products include high-resolution maps of the polar regions in visible wavelengths and photogrammetrically corrected radar maps.
