In this abstract we present an approach to analyze a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) located at the Lunar south pole using a web client. The aim of this paper is to describe the structure of the project which involves a server (database) and a client (web interface) side. A case study is proposed where the tool will be evaluated to calculate illumination conditions. The analyzed area is located on the south pole of the Moon where illumination has been exhaustively studied. The results will be cross-validated with previous studies in order determine their robustness.
