Google Mars is here
Google is now showing you maps of the Mars. This feels just like Google Maps for earth. You can switch between three different map types; elevation, visible, and infrared. A list of "links of interest" (like where spacecrafts landed), as well as named mountains, canyons, dunes and craters is also available.
Google in their Mars FAQ says they're working on a version of this Mars data to be used in Google Earth (desktop) clients.
