Google Mars

Google presents the martian surface using the Google Maps interface. Pretty. Informative. I like.

The display features viewing options including elevation, infrared, and visible surface images from NASAs Mars Global Surveyor and Mars Odyssey space crafts.

From the website:
In collaboration with NASA researchers at Arizona State University, we've created some of the most detailed scientific maps of Mars ever made.
Updated: Heres a related link to the Google Blog.
