Browning's map of Mars. This is a cylindrical projection of the Mars globe presented by the British instrument maker John Browning (1835-1925) to the Royal Astronomical Society in 1868. It has latitude and longitude co-ordinates and is labelled in English. Areas of highlands and lowlands are marked as continents, lands, and seas, and are named after famous astronomers, though these names are not now used on Mars maps. Browning's work improved on the first Mars globe, which had been constructed in 1863 by John Phillips (1800–1874). This projection was prepared by the British astronomer Richard Anthony Proctor (1837-1888).
