Google Mars

Because there's something wrong with me, I breezed past the first half-dozen articles in my Bloglines feeds about the new Google Mars project, and only on the seventh actually hit the link to see what all the fuss was about.

I've got a globe of this shaded relief map of Mars in my office, and have used it in writing Fire Star as well as Iron Jaw and Hummingbird. But I can't imagine how much easier it would've been if I'd had this tool, as well.

The map does a funky thing when you zoom out too far, repeating the landscape like a tiled background image, but other than that, this is drool-inducing cool.
