The Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) has a new online resource available for the Moon’s south pole (www.lpi.usra.edu/lunar/lunar-south-pole-atlas/). Given NASA’s recent direction to implement Space Policy Directive-1 landing astronauts at the south pole by 2024, the LPI has compiled a series of maps, images, and illustrations designed to provide context and reference for those interested in exploring this area.

Institutions planning Apollo 50th / Moon 2 Mars events for July may find these resources useful.
