Looking for a Lunar altitude map

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to locate a map with a lunar "sea-level" and colors (or similar) which change based on relative altitudes.

    I'm striking out online in my quick 15 minute search. Does anyone know of where I should be looking?

    Thanks,

    All right, boys and girls,

    I'm showing off now:

    Matlab code is attached. You need to download the topogrd1.dat file from the archives on this site: (it's too big to attach)

    http://pds-geophys.wustl.edu/pds/clementine/gravity_topo/

    and run the attached code with both files in Matlab's current directory.
