The Moon surface has been divided into a series of Quadrangles by the US geological survey.

The Moon has been divided into 30 quadrangles by the United States Geological Survey at the 1:2,500,000 map scale.[1] At the 1:1,000,000 scale it's divided into 144 quadrangles.[2]

The quadrangles are numbered in bands from north to south. Each band is then divided into a latitude-dependent number of quadrangles. At the poles, the bands consist of a single quadrangle, so LQ01 is a circle around the north pole.
