3D Mars Maps

Back in 2013, Stamen was invited to speak at the Jet Propulsion Lab for "Visualization: From Data to Discovery," a conference about the overlap between data visualization and science.

As a small gesture of thanks to the scientists who are working hard to do science and communicate with the public, we put together a 3D contour map of the Martian surface, using data collected by the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter. You can take a look for yourself at maps.stamen.com/mars.
