The 200k series

Standard procedure: “the Martian surface is covered in 10,372 individual sheets in equal-area projections:

  • Sinusoidal Projection for latitudes between 85° north and south and
  • Lambert Azimuthal Equal-Area Projection around the poles.

While all map sheets cover 2° in latitude, the longitude extent increases from 2° in the equatorial zone towards 360° at the poles.
