From The Atlantic (yeah, I know) a not-too-terribly scientific look at what a terraformed Mars might look like. Great pics:
I can't imagine that doesn't result in some really odd weather. I do think the artist got it right that one half of that continent is really green (perhaps even waterlogged, like the Amazon) and the other half is pretty dry and barren; a watery Mars isn't necessarily going to be a green Mars. I could also see a wet Mars experiencing something like an epic version of our monsoon pattern weather.

Those of you looking to convert the more modern, suitable-for-framing style artsy world maps into traditional, suitable-for-hex-crawlin' maps might want to give this new feature in Hexographer a look:
Hexographer just got a new feature: Converting a map (or really any PNG image) into a hex map! This is designed to make it a little easier to create a hex map based on another map you’ve created or scanned.And now I'm intrigued by the possibilities of hex-a-fying things that were not intended to be maps originally.
