The United States Geological Survey has created an incredibly detailed geological and structural map of the West Candor Chasma area of Mars. The map is the most detailed ever of an area of Mars and was constructed by Dr. Chris Okobu using data taken from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

The USGS also released a map flyover animation of the region.
