As I tend to follow many since based sites via Facebook, I found it quite fascinating when the space.com page posted an update concerning the newest and most accurate images of the Martian landscape. Additionally I felt that anyone that is running or is interested in running a Mars based game would find these images to be of great interest/use. The maps can be downloaded from the following site, pubs.usgs.gov/sim/3292/. Although the images are quite small once enlarged the text to the right provides a wealth of information on the topography of the planet. Furthermore I could even imagine that one could retrofit these images into the creation of a non Barsoomian campaign map rife with lush terrain, oceans, and separate continents/islands.
