Blank map of Mars

Blank map of Mars

Dotted line shows seasonal maximum frost extent; continuous lines show approximate boundaries of geographical features (they are not automatically generated contour lines), dotted areas show current approximate extent of dark sand cover (low albedo) from MGS images. Linear features are fossae or valles; and the polar cap’s topographic (not permanent ice) boundaries. Cartographer: H. Hargitai. […]
