These are the sites described by Wang et al. in that paper. However, don't get too excited. I have come to the conclusion that these are part of an academic exercise in site selection which is not necessarily anything to do with the flight project. There were lots of similar studies for Chang'e 3, 4 and 5.

Would be interesting though to see Tianwen race Perseverance to see who can get to the otherside of the crater first. wheel.gif wheel.gif rolleyes.gif
Race results will beam to Earth 20 minutes after finish of the months long event.
