Beautiful and stunning larger map, click below
Its seems as if we must apologise to many great historical astronomers because although there observations were incorrect, there assumptions
were amazingly prophetic.

Canals and with another "Mars face" example(wow)
observational notes.
In the centre of this image we can see a
rocky outcrop that punctuates this once
fertile landscape and if you follow the vertical canal channel, you will see that were it meets this outcrop it continues on the other side "but", it does not line up accurately with this
other line so it cannot pre-date the rocky outcrop but more importantly, how can a geological manifestation meet an outcrop in a linear fashion and appear at the other side though not accurately but to follow the general vector.Well I think we all know how this has been created and to say its remarkable would be an understatement of the highest order to any
scientifically minded person.
Also in this image we can see that some horizontal canal lines have been bored with
crater like markings, this could of been to
keep water in areas longer to increase the
water capacity of the canals as times became
harder but if you notice carefully at some
areas were this activity has taken place horizontally, it jumps across a dogleg corner
and carry s on across the landscape but does not appear on the vertical connecting canal.Once
again this kind of landscaping cannot be produced in a logical manner naturally thus
must be the workings of some former intelligence
on the red planet that could master the art of
irrigation !
