Jules Map Server
This site offers map tools to better visualize geophysical and geological processes and structures. Jules Verne Voyager is an interactive map tool for virtual exploration of Earth and other worlds (e.g. Mars, Jupiter and their moons); with custom map creation and fully interactive pan and zoom and extensive image selection. An ILP Global Strain Rate Map displays the latest global model of strain in the Earth's crust. Voyager Junior is designed for more casual browsing of Earth. It is usually faster, with pre-set pan and zoom using pre-made Voyager images.
