- This atlas was designed for a window size of around 1000x750.

- Tested under Netscape Navigator 4.08, but should work with other popular browsers.
- Feature names and coordinates will appear in the status window
(of many browsers) as you move the mouse.
- Netscape 4 has a bug that makes the status messages disappear after you've clicked.
They will come back if you move the mouse out of the image and then back in.
The maps used here were originally created by USGS's Astrogeology division in Flagstaff
from NASA/JPL Viking Orbiter images.
