Image Processing

The mosaic consists of seven orbit strips (2640, 2662, 2684, 16895, 18910, 18977, 18984) and covers a region 274.5° - 283° East and 49° - 54.5° South. Orbits 18910, 18977, and 18984 were covered in December 2018 and January 2019. The mosaic resolution is approximately 50 meters per pixel. The color mosaic was created using data from the nadir channels, the fields of view which are aligned perpendicular to the surface of Mars, and the color channels of the HRSC. The oblique perspective view was generated using data from the HRSC stereo channels. The color-coded topographic view is based on a digital terrain model (DTM) of the region, from which the topography of the landscape can be derived. The reference body for the digital terrain model is a Mars equipotential surface (Areoid).

The systematic processing of the camera data took place at the DLR Institute for Planetary Research in Berlin-Adlershof. The working group of Planetary Science and Remote Sensing at Freie Universität Berlin used the data to create the image products shown here.
