NASA World Wind and The Moon
NASA World Wind version 1.3.3 (October 2005) now has the ability to browse Clementine moon data with full 3D terrain.
Three data sets are available; Clementine 40xx, Clementine 30xx, and the Shaded Relief map provided by the USGS. The first two were created using data processed by Clementine.
All three provide enough detail to see craters within craters. For more information regarding the Clementine mission see link.
Clementine Project Information
Clementine was a joint project between the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization and NASA. The objective of the mission was to test sensors and spacecraft components under extended exposure to the space environment and to make scientific observations of the Moon and the near-Earth asteroid 1620 Geographos. The observations included imaging at various wavelengths including ultraviolet and infrared, laser ranging altimetry, and charged particle measurements. These observations were originally for the purposes of assessing the surface mineralogy of the Moon and Geographos, obtaining lunar altimetry from 60N to 60S latitude, and determining the size, shape, rotational characteristics, surface properties, and cratering statistics of Geographos.

On my version of this Nasa world wind program areas are missing detail possibly its not been completed, however is it just me or are there a lot of squarish looking almost city like images near some of the squared out details. Just to the left of the lansberg area its like looking a an aerial view of buildings. Anyone else seen this or is it just my poor graphics?

This is the only part of the moon that I've found this sort of grey box, and it just happens to be covering something that might be of interest.
