Google Mars!

With a tip of the hat to Davep! Google Mars is fantastic. Google Moon was a bit of fun, but this is a serious resource. You have genuine Mars maps in exquisit detail, you can choose from coloured topgraphic maps, black and white visible light maps and infrared maps. You can search for features, and it has pre-searched feature groups (Mountains, canyons dunes etc.) which you can browse through. As well there are links to NASA articles about special reigions. You will spend ages exploring these maps, book mark them today.

That is insanely cool. I think the fascinating thing about Mars is that it's a real place you could walk on. Which, for some reason, is a mind-blowing concept.
