Install and Run Mars24

Depending on your operating system and how you have it set up, installing Mars24 may be as simple as double-clicking the Mars24J archive icon on your desktop. If not, then you may have to use the appropriate command-line call from the shell.

The Mars24 archive contains a folder called Mars24J which holds the following items:

  • Java application in a jar file called "Mars24.jar".
  • Other Java code in additional *.jar files.
  • Martian landmarks file "marslandmarks.xml".
  • "Sourcemaps" directory containing extra sample Mars maps.
  • A README file.
  • A subdirectory called "help" which includes user documentation.

Depending on your operating system set-up, you should be able to launch Mars24 by simply double-clicking on the Mars24.jar file. But if that desn't work, then you would need to launch from a shell command line by typing:

java -jar -Xmx512M Mars24.jar
