That's on the Google frontpage now, linked from the logo.

The resolution is kind of poor.

Kind of a weird bug (or rendering decision): zoom all the way out and the map tiles...

Wow.

OK - I zoomed out too and at the moment it isn't much in honesty but ... wow... I see a big bold statement from Google by linking to this from the home page.

Are they saying "One day we will rule the world"?

I think not. I think they are saying that they have already beaten the world and they are just trying to stay ahead of the game.

You HAVE to admire the PR person that decided this was a goer!

Bet that makes the Mainstream Media - if only in the "bazaar" section of the papers.

lol! First Planet Google, now Google Galaxy. Not sure if they can get into much more unless they are working on a way to tap into worm holes and such. ;)

Naw, they raised their sights higher than the world a long time ago. What they're actually saying here is "One day we will rule the universe." ;)

Next thing you know we'll have 'Google Home', which will provide a listing of everything you have in your house, and where each item is at all times.

I do not understand why "Google Maps" are discussed as major event. Maps are available in physical form (on paper). Google is providing them online.
It's like a book that has been reintroduced online.

Google has sandboxed most of Mars. Look at it yourself, there is nothing when you move up.

It's only the home page of Mars. The rest has gone supplemental.

They can rule the internet but they cannot rule the world

While I understand the great excitement over Google Maps for Mars, I still don't find Mumbai on the map, and as for satellite view, theres a lot of improvement needed!

I personally consider Google maps helpful since they can give the exact location of a company. If an international person is visiting an american company he won't feel lost for directions provided with an online map

I think this is a wonderful celebration of astronomer Percival Lowell's birthday. Not only did NASA just put a new high resolution orbiter around the planet, but Google has launched Google Mars.

Mars orbiter reaches Red Planet
[news.bbc.co.uk...]

"Previous orbiters could see something the size of a double-decker bus on the surface of Mars - this can see a dinner table," said Dr Matthew Genge, of Imperial College, London.

"So that means we can see things like a small spring of hot water coming out of the ground, if such a thing exists."

The Nasa mission team says that MRO will return 10-times more data than all of the previous Mars missions put together.

Ultimately, I can see Google stitching all the Mars data together in much the same way as it's using Google Earth to interface with any data that has a geographical reference.

Now that would really be very useful, and not only for finding your keys!

Insurance companies want such lists, let Google provide them!

Unfortunately when I look at my home, on Google Maps, I at best see a blur. Not Google's fault, just the spy satellites aren't really interested in my part of the USA:(

I guess in 20 years the resolution will be great, I hope Google are working on how to get through the roof though!

If positive aspect is considered then people visiting unknown areas or addresses (first time visit) will be comfortable since they have an online map of the unknown area.

Nothing, but it has everything to do with Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

It's a very Google "thing".

Is this likely to give a good return on investment for Google? No.

Is it cool? Yes!

In all likelihood, all they needed to do was to feed in the new maps to the current Google Earth system, so it probably didn't take them that long to get going. And it will generate yet more publicity for the Google Machine (tm).

The spy satellites LOVE my little English home. Wonder what they are scared of? I'm even clearer on Google Earth than area 51 ;)

SETI and SEO are both search...

Maybe in your neighborhood, but other places the data is horribly out of date. I zoomed in on the area where I used to live- just down the street from the famed Zqerphit Dynasty ruins. Not only does Google Mars not show my house, where I lived for 5 years, but it doesn't even show the ruins! I think it's part of a government conspiracy to erase all traces of the once magificent Zqerphit Dynasty, just because of Mars' liberal emigration policy.
