Well I didn't make it red, but I've never heard it was white (besides snow maybe).  You have any sources for that?  Thanks

i think that it could be quartz,very common on earth,or pomice,due or the fact Mars was a very volcanically active  planet,or Chalk 
there's even some fan art of mars white(not snow)

I wish I had a skill to create things like this. What I am doing to create a satellite image of a planet is just putting colours.
I need to learn from you! :) Really, really nice picture.

Thanks, though your art is way better than anything I could do. We all have our own skills I suppose.

I accuracy here probably isn't extremely high. I took a regular Mars topomap and erased the features that weren't supposed to exist yet. The cratering is probably quite inaccurate. I do have a much higher resolution version of this image which I used to make this: [link] image. If you really want it I'm sure I can get it to you some how, but I don't want you distributing it.

thanks. i wasnt thinking of distributing it, i just thought it might look nice in a real-time program called "orbiter", which uses hi res images, thats all. :)

I absolutely love it. It's really nice to see someone pays a lot of attention to science when portraying prehistoric Mars. I also see Valles Marineras still has to form by this period.

I hope I'm not bothering you with these recent comments, but I have one quibble about this map. More of a question really.

When I did my own Mars maps, I left large parts of the Tharsis Bulge bare of vegetation and snow/ice, a lot like your other Mars map. Is it even possible for snow to fall at such high altitude and thin air? I honestly don't know, so I guessed no.

The altitudes weren't as high back then. Most of the very high mountains had yet to form. Additionally I think that Valles Marineris, which formed during the end of this period, is strong evidence of a giant glacier covering the Tharsis region. This page is where I got most of my data: [link]

How ancient is the map? I mean how long ago is Mars to have looked similar to this?
Reply
:iconittiz:
Ittiz Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2010
Three billion years as I recall. I tried to get it just before Mars' ocean started to evaporate.
