Regional Maps

These maps look superficially like perspective views of the Moon but are actually azimuthal equal area projection, which in principle can show the entire Moon. However, distortion becomes very severe close to the antipode, so these maps use a cutoff of 150 degrees. Therefore, they show considerably more than half the Moon - roughly 5/6.
