Nancy Atkinson just posted a wonderful article at Universe Today about the effort to create the first ever map of the Moon in true 3D using the LROC data: http://www.universetoday.com/93642/get-your-own-unprecedented-3-d-view-of-the-moon/.

I love the idea of the public having a say in the direction of this enterprise via Kickstarter. Thoughts?

They should do the entire moon and then people can use it to mock up moon base and other lunar projects similar to Second Life.

Actually- these guys are not mapping the moon in 3D. That has already been done.

All they're doing is generating some anaglyphs from the already publicly available data.
