Cartographer: Eleanor Lutz

Content: Map the 0° hemisphere of Mars  with medieval compass roses and 19th-century typographic elements mixed, created from DTM.

Fonts: “Moon Bold by Jack Harvatt, Chipperfield & Bailey by Paul Lloyd, Titania by Dieter Steffman, Antiquarian™ and Antiquarian Scribe™ by Brian Willson, and various elements cannibalized from old maps in the NY Public Library’s Digital Collection (1, 2, 3).”

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.
