This screenshot image, generated by the ESA planning software MAPPS, illustrates the movement of the spacecraft over the lunar surface. In this way it is possible to generate a lunar map with sequences of images taken by the SMART-1's AMIE camera. The tilt of the individual frames is a result of the
spacecraft attitude, which is driven by thermal constraints in orbit.
This particular map is built with images taken on 13 January 2006, and refers to an area at the edge of Mare Humorum.
