13. Apollo 12 site: Traverse map
The thick lines indicate the paths taken by the astronauts during the two EVAs. The Lunar Module location is designated by the X. The first EVA was devoted to the setup of the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP), a series of instruments that could be monitored and controlled from the Earth, and the second EVA included an investigation of several craters and the Surveyor 3 spacecraft.
The diagram is based on the Apollo 11, 12, and 14 traverse map prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey and published by the Defense Mapping Agency for NASA.
