Martian Map


First off, after yesterday's little red flying saucers story let me assure this isn't a map about little green men. In this case MARTIAN stands for MARs Tools for Interactive ANalysis. So whilst it isn't a map about little green men it is a map about everyone's favourite red planet.

MARTIAN uses the Google Maps API to create a topographical map of Mars. The map includes crustal thickness and Moho topography views. It is also possible to view normal faults and stress solutions.

MARTIAN also includes a number of links to locations on Mars. Clicking on one of the links will centre and zoom the map on that location.
