Andrew Knighton | 158 comments This article on recent mapping of Mars might interest people who enjoyed The Martian, or who, like me, just enjoy a good map. There's also a 19th century map of Mars in there, which is fascinating in its own way.

Does anyone else know of any particularly good maps of Mars, historical or imaginary? I'm still planning for my backpacking holiday across Barsoom.

David (dbigwood) Here at the Lunar and Planetary Institute we've scanned a few Mars maps. http://www.lpi.usra.edu/resources/mar...

We have scanned hundreds of lunar maps, samples, and photographs. http://www.lpi.usra.edu/resources/ Enjoy.

Tom (redbluething) For those of you who missed it, I made a map of The Martian using the Google Mars tile set. You can find it here:
