Subject: Mapping the 2005 Mars

 

Hi guys, here are two links with maps of Mars in 2005, made with WinJupos:

 

General map :

Polar maps :

I don't recall having seen many polar maps of Mars. This is easily done with WinJupos. One limit to these maps is that they have been realized with images from three different months (september, octobre, november). Therefore seasonal and daily changes are mixed together, bringing errors to the map, such as the SPC which doesn't present its real shape, or the NPH. Nonetheless the map of the NPH is interesting; it proves clearly that the hood reaches more southerly latitude around 30░ and 210░, where are theoretically found the Acidalium and Utopia low pressure systems...

 

Many thanks to you Grischa for your fantastic software and to all that gave you a hand!

Best wishes,


Christophe PELLIER (Noisy Le Grand, France)
