Map of possible landing sites for Red Dragon and Mars2020/ExoMars missions

Jake Robins from WeMartians Podcast has created a map of possible landing sites for SpaceX's first Red Dragon lander and NASA's Mars 2020 / ESA&Roscosmos's ExoMars rovers.
  • Red X = crashed/failed landings 
  • Green circle = successful landings 
  • Yellow ? mark = candidate sites for Mars2020/ExoMars 
  • Space "X" = candidate sites for Red Dragon

It is presumed that the most possible landing site for SpaceX's first Red Dragon lander is southern Arcadia Planitia. We will see.

Toponymic MAP of Mars

When reading Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy I tried to find in the web a good map of Mars with enough toponyms to print out and effectively follow the story. I didn't found one. There were a few with the very basic toponymy of Mars but none to really follow the geographically rich story of Red Mars, Green Mars and Blue Mars. So I made one by myself collecting a lot of data from various maps including Google Mars. Feel free to use and share it :)
