India's Chandrayaan 2 is creating the highest-resolution map we have of the moon

Chandrayaan 2 orbiter has an optical camera called the Orbiter High-Resolution Camera (OHRC) that captures detailed images of the moon. OHRC can image at a best resolution of 0.25 meters/pixel, beating NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter's (LRO) best of 0.5 meters/pixel.

This capability will be used to image insides of craters on the lunar poles, where sunlight never reaches. Mapping the terrain of polar craters is important because future lunar habitats are believed to be stationed near them, transporting water and other resources from inside them..
