DESCRIPTION

The available double-sided landmark map pages came directly from the Apollo 9 Landmark Maps & Photos checklist and originated from the collection of Mission Commander Jim McDivitt. The maps are notated as landmarks and North compass points. Each has a chart printed giving latitude, longitude, elevation, and horizontal uncertainty calculations for each identified location. The NASA Apollo Earth Landmark Maps, printed by the Army Map Service, are all on a scale of 1:1,000,000.

The landmark map plates were intended for an emergency procedure in which the Apollo astronauts could update the spacecraft guidance and navigation computers by inputting precise position information of preselected Earth landmarks. Such maps of candidate landmarks and related data charts were prepared and carried by astronauts in both the Gemini and Apollo programs.
