Links to download the latest cross-platform, web-enabled versions of the Dynamic Digital Map of the Mt Sharp, Mars are found below.

This Dynamic Digital Map expands on a previous research project concerning Gale Crater on Mars. It focuses on areas within a 1,000 kilometer radius of Gale and uses thematic maps of eight areas to show significant analogues to Mt. Sharp, the central mound in Gale Crater. Comparisons are made using two forms of high-resolution images as well as additional alimetery and thermal inertia data sets from satellites orbiting Mars. The previous research project was conducted for the Lunar and Planetary Institute Summer Intern Program, and took place at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, under the advisement of Dr. Carlton Allen, Astromaterials Curator, where Lisa Korn had a summer internship.

The "DDM-MtSharpAnalogs" contains two thematic maps (MOLA and Geologic), with unit explanations, of eight areas within and around Gale Crater, Mars. It also contains 33 images with captions describing each, and a thumbnail, all linked to the maps and two articles describing this research. Each map contains labels that can be searched for and located, using the "Map Search List" palette.
