MAPS OF BARSOOM

The following notes were written or typed upon the map:

Upper right hand corner: "MAP of BARSOOM " and "XVI"

At the bottom of the map:

The quality of the map reproduced in "An Atlas of Fantasy" is very poor, though most markings are legible. Both maps, the one above and the one following, appear to be pencil drafts laid out with protractor and ruler. Latitude and Longitude lines are charted, though slightly inaccurate in dimensioning. When scanned to create these maps, the results were so poor that the lat & long markings were removed and all remaining features were either hand-enhanced, redone, or colorized. Any resulting errors are mine. I clearly made out city names, geographic features and notations with the exception of an area southeast of Lothar. The text appears to be "entrance". It is not marked on the map above.

The following notes were written or typed upon the map:

Upper right hand corner: "MAP of BARSOOM " and "XVI"

At the bottom of the map:

The second map (above) bears two features in black which are not clearly defined. The circular object is just that, but very prominent. The second appears to be a city dot and "Zodanga" strongly scratched out. These objects are unretouched results of the original scan process. Unfortunately they are also a bit less distinct than the print from which they were taken.

Unduplicated on the map above were handwritten notations inserted above "Toonolian Marshes". Dimension arrows indicating the eastern and western extremes of the marsh area bears the description: "1790 miles" and "2700 haads" and there is another number which appears to be "1823" (miles) which was crossed out.

HEINS MAP with FANFIC LOCATIONS

At right is a Barsoom Map based on the research of Reverend Henry Hardy Heins, premier Burroughs collector and bibliographer. This map has been extended by David Bruce Bozarth to include Fan Fiction locations. Click on the image to get a full size version.

The Heins work is labeled in BLACK. The Fan Fiction work is labled in BLUE. The Edgar Rice Burroughs items not referenced by Rev. Heins is in RED. Notes regarding the fan fiction locations are included. NOTE: Map is incomplete for all fan fiction stories and will be updated in the future.

Some speculation regarding the extent of the ancient Barsoomian oceans and the Orovar influence is marked.

A NASA BASED MAP

The following map was prepared by Jeff Kazmeirski and sent to me September 1998. Jeff used a topological map from Nasa and applied the locations of the Barsoomian cities.
