    Linear features?

    Would the striations running NE to SW in the attached image be considered "Linear features"?

    Hi CJSF,

    In terms of linear features, we are generally looking for scarps, wrinkle ridges, and other individual linear features. But the ones you point out here are probably related to scouring caused by the emplacement of an ejecta deposit from a large crater outside the view of this image.

    In any case, they seem to be an interesting set, so I would go ahead and mark them.

    Hi All,
    At the top left of this picture there appears to be some type of "ridgeline." Would this qualify as a "linear feature" for the Moon Mappers project? Thanks for the help!

    Yes, that would. It's actually the edge of Hadley Rille.
