Take a tour of the Red Planet in 3D

Nasa and Microsoft Research group jointly brought hundreds of  high-resolution pictures forming 3-D map of the Red Planet, Mars. I had taken the in built tour myself and its mind blowing.

Tour of Mars

The maps contain 74,000 images from Mars Global Surveyor’s Mars Orbiter Camera and more than 13,000 high-resolution images of Mars taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter’s High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE)

The tour can be taken by installing WWT Client on Windows and for Mac OSX use the webclient.


  1. Sad to see the release of something cool as this without a equivalent linux port.
    Nothing against Microsoft, but still – not everyone is working in a ms environment.
