The presentation wasn't what I'd hoped, and no real clues as to when more data will be released, but for what it's worth there are three documents available here with scientifric results in them:

Of the three, the larger third document is probably of more interest, as it contains much of the other two and more pretty pictures smile.gif

A nice feature they've released along with the files is a collection of shape files - there are links on the TMC and OHRC browse and download pages.

Those shape files can be imported into Google Earth, which is a much easier way of seeing where they've covered!

These shapefiles can be imported as a layer into Quickmap as well!

Meanwhile in another webinar they shared OHRC image of Apollo-12 landing site taken on 5 April 2021.

https://youtu.be/vQj6oKgKeKc (Reddit thread)

Another slide gives rough location of possible sites. Compared with OHRC shape files it kind of narrows down location to match-up this visual of probable landing site of Chandrayaan-3 lander (~11592 meters)

Very interesting. Thanks for pointing it out. I see that another part of the presentation had a map with two points representing the Chandrayaan 3 landing sites (prime and backup), and they are not the same as the Chandrayaan 2 sites. They are both fairly close to the CH2 prime site but far from the CH2 backup site. That map is very low resolution but if it is superimposed on the original US Air Force mosaic which was its base the sites can be located better:

And with a bit of a mind-flip we get this:

I hope to learn more about the specific sites closer to launch.

Yes Phil I should've mentioned that and we discussed it on reddit, those blue dots are what narrowed down the relevant OHRC data regions and provide clues to where we should look for CY3 landing site.

I didn't notice the Reddit discussion - thanks. So it looks like my southern dot should be inside Boguslowsky crater. I moved it from the rim to a more level spot outside but I should have gone inside.

Another few hundred files released yesterday from the TMC camera. The updated collection of shape files show most of the new coverage is the far side, and higher northern/southern latitudes.
