NASA Planetary Data System Map-A-Planet

U.S. Geological Survey

This site provides a useful way to view and download image data from the Moon, Mars, Venus, Io, Ganymede, Callisto, and Europa. Users can click on a map to select the area of the image desired. The maps may be customized by selecting latitude and longitude, data type, projection type, and scale. The Mars portion of the site now has both a Viking and a MOLA data set. Other planetary data sets are also available, including all Magellan SAR imagery for Venus. The image data is available at various resolutions for download or the image can be sent to the user via ftp.
