Searching for Landmarks

There is a new search functionality in the lon/lat box that allows users to search for landmarks. Don't know where the landmark location is but you know the name of it? Use this search function to locate it! Go through this tutorial to learn how to use it.


Search for a Landmark in the lon/lat box:

  • Locate the lon/lat box at the top of the main JMARS screen.

  • In order to search by landmark name, you must click the magnifying glass next to the lon/lat box.

  • Click the magnifying glass (this will turn the magnifying glass yellow, that means it is active) and type the name of your landmark. This example is searching for "Gale" crater.

  • To exit the Landmark Search Tool and exit the list created, click the magnifying glass. This should turn the magnifying glass whit. Now, the search by landmark now is no longer active and the lon/lat coordinate search is active again.
