The National Aeronautics and Space Association (NASA) has released “Mars Trek”, an online tool that allows users to navigate across Mars in a manner similar to Google-Earth.

The map provides spectacular high-definition views of extraordinary landmarks on the red planet, such as Olympus Mons, the largest-known volcano in the solar system.

The zoomable map also provides users with the option of using 3D, which allows them to navigate through the north and south poles of Mars.

The latest map follows the creation of a similar tool by Mapbox, a custom online map service used by companies including Pinterest and Uber, made using data from NASA and ESA spacecraft.
