The China National Space Administration (CNSA) published four series of moon pictures and some data sent back by Chang'e-1, the country's first lunar orbiter, said CNSA spokesman Pei Zhaoyu on Sunday.

The CNSA released the first picture of the moon captured by Chang'e-1 on Nov. 26, marking the full success of its lunar probe project.

All the instruments on the Chang'e-I are in operation now, and some scientific progress has already been made based on the data collected by Chang'e-1, said Pei.

Scientific researchers are processing the data taken by the CCD camera carried by Chang'e-1, and have produced diagrams, three-dimensional maps and elevation maps of some regions on the moon.

With the accumulation of data, the precision of maps will also be enhanced, according to the CNSA. Other instruments on Chang'e-I are still accumulating data.

The operation, communication, and data transmitting and processing of the orbiter are all in good condition since November 26, according to CNSA.

According to CNSA, it will continue to publish the lunar exploration data after analysis.
