I found some straight lines on an image - see image:



Is this from the image processing or is it real?

Sorry if this question is in the wrong thread. How do I classify the little white bits? They look like points of light, if anything.  :D

They're very evenly spaced and so straight I'd guess they were not natural features - co-ordinate grid maybe?

Difficult to know without a scale isn't it? Think I'd mark them as "interesting" bumps and humps for now - 'till we get our eye in.

Are we meant to mark large bouldery areas, if they are not in craters and if so do we just say 'other' interesting feature as I can't find a more suitable option.

I had an interesting boulder strewn area which I saved as a favourite but now can't see how to retrieve favourites  :(  Maybe it's not working yet in the beta?

I would agree - mark them as other/interesting. Things should become clearer when enough of us have classified and we get some feedback.

As far as I know favourites should save - though they won't be transferred over to live Moon Zoo. Haven't tried it yet - forgot!

Favourites may save all right but how do I get hold of the favourites? There doesn't seem to be any way to access favourites that I can see.

Yes I've just noticed that. I've PM'd Arfon. :)

And those lines you pointed out earlier Geoff - there seem to be a few pictures with them so they must be an imaging artifact.

Thanks for solving the favourites problem Jules!

This is a test of one of my favourites:

Some long shadows on some of the objects.

This is an interesting boulder strewn area. The area looks symmetrical - if you draw a line down the centre of the area it has almost mirror symmetry.
