Google Mars

Did anyone else realize that Google had created a Google Mapsesque lab based on the NASA MOLA (Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter) elevation map of the red planet?  Or did I just miss this entirely?  In any case, explore at Google Mars.

 

Just for fun, here’s the same map raster in a Bonne projection (standard parallel at 90N).

Projected with NASA’s G.Projector–a super-handy program to easily project global maps.
