Craters 5 km to 20 km in diameter (60N to 60S, 0 to 90E).

Vector map of lunar craters greater than or equal to 5 kilometers and less than or equal to 20 kilometers in diameter centered between 60N to 60S latitude and 0 to 90E longitude. The map base consisted of the monochromatic (643nm) LROC WAC morphologic map with a resolution of 100 meters/pixel. Crater rims were digitized at a scale between 1:250,000 and 1:500,000. This is one part of a six part series of lunar crater shapefiles.
