British scientists have created a map of Mars

Cartographic society of great Britain Ordnance Survey, drawing on open data from NASA, has developed a digital map of the surface of Mars, which covers the plot scale 3672×2721 miles — about 7% of the area of the planet.

The map was compiled at a scale of 1 : 4 million.

The authors suggest that map the surface of Mars may be useful for future Martian missions, especially given that private and government space agencies have been conducting intensive training to land the first man on Mars.

The map is compiled according to the usual principle, but its design differs significantly from the design maps of the earth, including the colors.
