The Chang'e orbiter has successfully operated for more than 1 year. The exploration data sent back by Chang'e has been distributed to registered research institutes and universities after the pre-processing in National Astronomical Observatories of China (NAOC). This talk will introduce the processing and visualization of Chang'e-1 Lunar Exploration Data in Macau University of Science and Technology collaboratively with NAOC, CSSAR and Tsinghua University in the past few months. In this talk, the scientific objectives and its related data of Chang'e-1 will be firstly introduced. In order to study the topology of Lunar surface, the enhancement and automatic seamless stitching of the images from CCD camera will be shown and the data processing and its visualization of the laser altimeter will be discussed, then, followed by the comparison with the results of other countries. For the purpose to analyze the abundance of different elements and its distribution on lunar surface, the analysis of γray spectrum and the distribution of Thorium will be presented. To probe the space environment in the vicinity of the moon, the preliminary results for visualization of measurement data of sonar wind will also be shown. At last, future works will be discussed.
