(Full disclosure - I work for USGS Astrogeology in Flagstaff. Among my
duties is maintaining a collection of about 120,000 lunar and planetary
maps, most made by USGS on contract to NASA. Along with that we have
documents concerning map and mapping equipment development, drafts and
various production phase map copies, and a collection of vintage map-making
