This is complete, except for the descriptions in the data file - I have been too lazy/strapped for time to enter all 1064 descriptions - about 50% complete - Hey it's free you will have to wait...

There are 3 versions available, these only differ in the data file they use, this is to help those that don't have a great deal of memory on their pocket PC.

Small - contains Lunar 100, mountains and seas, and the craters listed in 'Norton's 2000.0 18th Edition', doesn't contain any crater descriptions.

Medium - contains everything in 'Small' plus all named lunar craters totalling 1064 features- when I say all, they have to be visible on Earth - the odd crater might be missing.

Large - everything in 'Small' and 'Medium' plus crater descriptions for craters starting with A - L (635 features). The observant amongst you will find that the data file is a csv file so you can add the other descriptions yourself - source for descriptions is Wikipedia - if you do, do me a favour and e-mail me the file or a link to it...
