Mars in 3D

Published by at 9:52 pm under Mars

Astrobiology Magazine reports that high resolution 3D Mars maps are now available thanks to data from the Mars Express Hi Res Stereo Camera (HRSC). This data has already been used to produce some wonderful topographic maps (click image for better view). If I ever get back to working on my Great Martian Novel (about building the Aresian Well), these will come in handy.

    Pretty cool maps.

    The display of this page in Akregator sucks though. Fonts are the wrong size.

    Anyway, just wanted to add a comment.
