NASA site lets you "take a walk" on Mars

NASA just put out a bunch of super detailed maps of the Mars planetary surface. It's all thanks to a camera on  the Mars Odyssey spacecraft. This is the most accurate global Martian map ever.

Users can pan around images and zoom into them. At full zoom, the smallest surface details are 330 feet wide. While portions of Mars have been mapped at higher resolution, this map provides the most accurate view so far of the entire planet.
