The vector map layers data, included in the archive, originated from Gazetteer of Planetary Nomenclature of International Astronomical Union (IAU) Working Group for Planetary System Nomenclature (WGPSN), which published on USGS site: http://planetarynames.wr.usgs.gov. The MOON_nomenclature.zip file was used from the site, which contains shape-file representation.
The datum presented here in form of .VML-files (stands Vector Map Layer), which is proprietary compressed format of author of the datum.
Additionally the datum contains data for both Polar Regions of Moon re-projected to Polar Stereographic projection. Areas of this re-projecting coincide with respective areas for raster elevation and albedo data of LOLA instrument of LRO mission for respective Polar Regions.
