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.

I Want to Go to Mars Now
I have Mars on my iPad. I have Mars on my iPad. I have Mars on my iPad. What more do you need to know? This is way beyond cool! The entire planet is mapped and annoted so you can easily find any named feature or turn off the labels and imagine youself cruising over the surface. Very, very happy with this app but it does really make me want go there. Maybe in my next life...
Can learn quit a bit!
You can click on the different "labels" on Mars and u get the details. Like they said, the pics are from the different rovers that have been OR on there right now (curiosity). They're very clear. There are dif options on the top left of the screen. It can keep u busy!
I I like the way it shows you mars the way it is now in the universe if you could see it through a telescope it would show you that it's day or night or what part of Mars you are looking at
