DESCRIPTION

The available double-sided photo map pages came directly from the Apollo 9 Landmark Maps & Photos checklist and originated from the collection of Mission Commander Jim McDivitt. The photos are notated as landmarks and North compass points. All have various NASA photo numbers signifying that they were taken on various Gemini flights between 1965 and 1966. Each has a chart printed beneath giving latitude, longitude, elevation, and horizontal uncertainty calculations for each identified location.

The 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.
