The Finest Map of Mars

Using nearly 21.000 images from the the Thermal Emission Imaging System on NASA’s Mars Odyssey spacecraft, researchers at Arizona State University and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory have compiled a global map of the Martian surface with unprecedented detail. At full zoom, the smallest details visible are about 100 meters across. The map can be accessed here  (allow a minute or so for data to upload).
