A Comparison of Visible and Topographic Data for the Martian South Pole
This is one of a series of visualizations showing false-colored renderings of the Martian topography measured by MOLA in the vicinity of the Mars Polar Lander landing site. Blue tones represent elevations of less than 2 kilometers, while reddish tones are greater than about 2.8 kilometers, relative to the mean equatorial height of Mars. The elevation of the landing site is about 2.4 km, midway into the polar layered terrain. The 400 meters (1-4 mile) resolution of the MOLA data gives a smoothed

Population Density of the World, 1990-2015 (WMS)
This animation shows the population density of the world in the years 1990, 1995, 2000, as well as a projected population density map in 2015. These figures have been adjusted to match United Nations totals. The most dramatic differences in population are not readily visible in this animation because they are located in cities. The maximum population density in 1990 was about 79,000 people per square kilometer, while the estimated maximum population density in 2015 will be about 236,000 people p
