Martian Street View - Part Two
Back in February I worked with Map Channels to create this Martian Street View Map, using panoramas of Mars captured by NASA's Mars' missions.
Today I came across Mars Panoramas, which I think pre-dates my collaboration with Map Channels (it uses v2 of the Google Maps API). The Mars Panoramas use the same NASA 360 degree panoramas to, in effect, create a Street View map of Mars.
The Map Channels Martian Street View Map only really works in FireFox, as the images render a bit strangely in IE and Chrome. Mars Panoramas seems to work fine on all browsers and it looks to me that the images are of a much higher resolution as well
