Google Mars

This map of Mars permits users to zoom and pan across the planet's surface. One can select three views, including a shaded relief map, photographic mosaic (visible spectrum), or an infrared mosaic. The map is searchable by regions, spacecraft landing sites, feature types (mountains, dunes, etc.), or by keyword. More than 100 features are marked with "pushpins" and pop-up windows that provide information on their sizes, locations, and some historical facts. Links to additional information are embedded in the text of the pop-ups.
