Ginormous Mars atlas for free

June 23, 2010

Your tax dollars at work: the USGS map of the Hellas Planitia region of Mars, all 13.8 megabytes of it, is freely available for download here. Hat tip to Mike.

If you’re more interested in the kind of Mars exploration depicted above, try here.

Either way, have fun!

  1. Thanks for the pointer. Going back to my backpacking days (well, hopefully they aren’t really over), I love topo maps. Now, I need to either figure out how to arrange a backpacking trip to Mars, or how to get a scope that will see these details on Mars!!
