found raw Mars data

Found the Mars Viking Colorized Global Mosaic 232m v2 web page.

It is a global image map of Mars with a resolution of 256 pixels per degree (with a scale of approximately 232 meters per pixel at the equator).

This is from the Astrogeology Science Center of the United States Geological Survey. Part of the AstroPedia, a lunar and planetary cartographic catalogue.

I think the USGS offers data products in a raw form. Then others can manipulate this data as they see fit.

This is the horse's mouth.

Discussions with Chris suggest that Starry Night allows the user to control the data source for Mars rendering. He specifically chose the Viking data.

Wish I could do this in my software apps...

I'll put a pin in this one...
