Animation "Flight around Noctis Labyrinthus" [798 MB]
This mosaic image is combined with topography information from a digital terrain model (DTM) to generate a three-dimensional landscape. Every second of the movie consists of 50 separate frames that are rendered following a pre-defined camera path in the scene. The opening credits (Mars globe) were created using the Mars global color mosaic (20th anniversary special) with a 3-fold vertical exaggeration. The vertical exaggeration used for the animation “Flight around Noctis Labyrinthus” is 1.5-fold. The haze has been added to conceal the limits of the terrain model. It starts building up at 150-200 km distance.
