Lunar Map Pro 2.0 and Lunar Map Pro Basic Edition features: The most accurate measuring tool available
Have you ever wondered if there is a way to determine the diameter of
a lunar crater near the limb, where the oblique angle of view creates a highly
exaggerated, elongated view of the feature?
For example: Let’s take the crater, Ptolemaeus (Lat. 9-09-14S), (Long. 002-00-11W). A measurement taken from north to south, using Lunar Map Pro's Surveyor Tool will show it to be 79.06 miles or 127.3 Km or 69.60” of arc in diameter on 6/14/2003. (see below). If you check a reference manual, you will find that this measurement is correct.
Map Pro 2.0
Only : Surveyor Tool Enhancement
Lunar Distance Measurement
This is an upgrade that combines the values of
multiple selected points, making it possible to accurately measure curved or
jagged features, such as Rilles, Dorsum and Mountain Ranges. Two point
measurements can still be utilized for measuring features such as Craters and
Mare, as well as distances between features.
