Intro and New stuff:


7 April 2008- Added a Barsoom view of The Great Desert and U-Gor to the Sectionals page.
19 Fen 2008- Updated a lot of the maps based on the Bozarth-Heins map that can be found here at ErbList.com and You need to read these first to fully understand what I have done here.
From this point I created a globe of the planet, past and present then converted that to a flat-map poster some 5í by 8í in size.
This map was turned into a series of smaller projections, each about 30 degrees by 40 degrees in size.
Upon these maps, I placed my thoughts on the ancient shorelines, the cities, the waterways, the political and physical features. When someone mentioned a location, I would refer to my Mola map, compare that to my Poster and see where I could locate the place.
And finally, I added the cities created and mentioned in the current fan-fic stories. Not all of which give an accurate location. If I err, please enlighten me.
I am uploading only the low-rez black-&-white maps though I do have the entire set colored in proper tones. Have a publisher contact me for these.

I will add some thoughts on the areas mentioned as I feel.
Also as I can I will update the maps with fan-fic locations and other thoughts such as the Face on Mars which we now call the Face of Tur.
If you are a writer, please use my maps to enhance your writings and please let me know the locations of your cities and such so I can update this atlas.
So, take sword in hand, peruse the pages and see what is where.

On to the Atlas!
