Thanks to Talk moderator Andy (wassock), we have a handy map that overlays previous plots I’ve made of the locations of the HiRISE images being focused on by Planet Four and the CTX images that are being searched on Planet Four: Terrains.  He’s also marked some of the target of interest areas like Ithaca, Inca City, Manhattan, and Giza that we’ve been trying to focus on over the past two years on Planet Four.

Andy overlays the plot on top of the geologic map of the Martian South Pole produced by the United States Geological Survey that’s been discussed on Planet Four: Terrains Talk. You can find more details about it here.

    The detail around the South Polar area is amazing here. I am comparing this to the 12″ Mars globes (standard red Mars and the topographic), which I have in my study.

    These globes give a brilliant general overview of the planet, however a while ago I used them to look for the areas where we were analysing and many names were just lost (too small) i.e. No Inca City!
