Panoramas on Mars

Google Earth isn't limited to just views of the Earth. You can also view Mars and the Moon in Google Earth. You can take tours of Mars and view panoramic imagery of Mars in Google Earth. But if you don't have Google Earth installed on your computer you're not excluded from viewing the panoramas. Recently, through Google Maps Mania, I learned about a site that is publishing panoramic imagery of Mars.

TripGeo hosts some panoramic imagery that can be viewed online without having Google Earth installed on your computer. The imagery comes from various NASA missions to Mars. The coding was done by Keir Clarke (the blogger at Google Maps Mania) and Rob McMahon.
