This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Take a tour of the mysterious Red Planet. This virtual globe combines a high-resolution satellite map with laser altimeter data and advanced topographic lighting to present the planet Mars as it appears from above. An Introduction and Guided Tour present some of Mars' most intriguing features. You can leave the guided tour and explore Mars as you like; over 1500 surface features have been annotated with information and links. Mars Globe is a must-have app for anyone interested in our solar system.

Great app! Just one request...
I am really excited and impressed with this app! The one thing that I wish it had is the ability to zoom in closer. I wouldn't even care if the clarity was bad, I really just want that option! Please give it serious consideration , it will make a big difference to the satisfaction of your app experience . Thank you!😃
It's like GoogleEarth for Mars!
I have wanted to go to Mars since I was a kid. I seriously thought we'd be there by the end of the last century. We don't have a human expedition to Mars planned until 2030. This is as close to the Red Planet as you and I are likely going to get. Zoom in on megalithic canyons in the Vales Marinares with a "bird's eye" sattelite orbital cam view. Exploring Mars virtually is highly addictive! I can't put it down! I want to explore every square inch of the planet!
Wonderful Visual Experience
How fortunate are we that we can view Mars in all it's splendor and totality so beautifully in the palms of our hands?
One of my favorite views is setting my distance and pan as though I were in orbit. Simply lovely and awe inspiring!
Well done on such a fine offering and authoring!
