The Kerbal Maps project is an effort to map all the celestial bodies in Kerbal Space program to give users an overview of the terrain and easter eggs, and provide high resolution digital elevation models to GIS savvy users and plugin developers.
A note about the new min/max elevation markers: They are not authoritative. The map data is a collection of point samples, so on bodies with a large radius the resolution is not high enough to find the exact highest point. In the worst case scenario it should still to accurate to within 50 meters or so.
- Historical version archive (show other versions of KSP)
- Place markers and share them
People using Kerbal Maps data:
- Tingle's Celestial Bodies Revamped High res texture pack
- Telemachus Telemetry and Flight Control in the Web Browser
Download map data from MEGA. All GeoTIFF format, zlib level 9 compressed, 256x256 tiles with no pyramids. Relief and sat images should open with any decent image editor/viewer and/or GIS software. Elevation GTIFFs will require GIS software.

- Show a specific body
- Set the view on a certain spot and show certain layers
- A marker with some text. Automatically zooms in to max. The popup automatically opens when there's only one marker.
- Marker text can have encoded html
- Multiple markers zoom and center automatically
- Unless you tell them not to with zoom and/or center
- Now with fancy biome maps!
0.1 8192x4096 map of Kerbin: satellite, relief, and slope tile layers with 5 zoom levels.
0.1.1 Markers for Kerbin space centers and anomalies. (no spoilers)
0.2 Add celestial body, legend, and scale controls. Add Mun and Minmus with 6 zoom levels.
0.3 Add Duna and Ike with 6 zoom levels.
0.3.1 Remove unconfirmed fourth anomaly from Duna. [-0.0005, -31.8825]
0.4 Add Moho, Eve, Gilly, Dres, Laythe, Tylo, Bop, Pol, and Eeloo at 6 zoom levels
0.5 Updated Kerbin and Mun to 0.21. Kerbin now has 6 zoom levels and the same slope relief scale and legend as the rest of the bodies. Used more exaggerated shading on sat.
0.6 Updated Moho, Eve, and Duna. Used more exaggerated shading on sat.
0.7 Updated satellite tiles to have more exaggerated shading for Gilly, Minmus, Ike, Dres, Laythe, Vall, Tylo, Bop, Pol, Eeloo.
0.8 Updated Bop to 0.21. Restored the ocean masking on Kerbin and Eve.
0.9 Added min/max elevation markers
0.10 Added biome color map and cursor hover. Click hover position to switch between decimal and DMS formatting. URL params live on production server.
0.11 Added textual elevation and slope on hover. Added data loading indicator to show when text data is loading.
