Image Processing

The images were acquired by the HRSC (High Resolution Stereo Camera) on 12 October 2017 during Mars Express Orbit 17444. The ground resolution in the center of the image is approximately one kilometer per pixel and the images are centered at 245° East and 25° North. The color image was created using data from the nadir channel, the field of view which is aligned perpendicular to the surface of Mars, and the color channels of the HRSC. The context maps are based on data of the Viking mission and of the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA) experiment onboard the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) mission of NASA.
