I don't know if this file is useful or not, but it appears to be discussing the Lunar Surface photography for Hadly/Appenine, Coperincus & Marius Hills.

See: Lunar surface coverage of the mapping camera for potential J-mission sites - Copernicus, Marius Hills, and Hadley/Apennine (170mb)

Edit:Run down a document containing computer generated contour maps of Apollo Sites 1-5 which could be useful for surface mesh generation. Also has good quality photos of sites 1-4.

Requested landing site.

Found the coordinates of a "typical SW Crisium" site in a document discussing changing the post LOI orbit to allow for landings at eastern lunar sites.

Checked out the coordinates (15.7šN by 46.4šE) and it turns out to be near the crater Proclus and could be worth modeling as a 'challenge' site as there is high ground nearby. See the linked picture for a map of the general area.
