Search with coordinates in planetocentric decimal format

This site favours planetocentric coordinates over planetographic coordinates. In this form:
- LONGITUDES are counted positive from the 0 meridian in the opposite direction to the rotation of Mars, i.e. from 0° to 360° eastward,
- NORTH LATITUDES (0° to 90°) are always positive. SOUTH LATITUDES are always negative (-90° to -0.0001°) and must be preceded by a minus sign (example: -23.45).

All these coordinates can be followed by a separating point and 1 to 4 decimal places.

Photo: This full-colour photo of a Martian dune was taken by Curiosity after climbing it on the 538th sol (Martian day) of its activity on the planet. For the scale, the space occupied by the wheels, from edge to edge, is 9 feet (2.7 meters). The dune measures, at its lowest point, 3 feet (1 meter) high in the middle of its span in the opening called "Dingo Gap" that the rover had already passed three days earlier. The rover looks behind it to the east where the barrier of Gale Crater can be seen in the distance. The astromobile, which has covered 4.97 km since its arrival, has taken this salutary step away from the rocky roads that damaged its wheels in the previous weeks. It continues westward towards Mount Sharp, whose base is about 5 km away.
