Highlight of the Month :

Special Views of Valles Marineris

This Highlight features two new views of Valles Marineris - an orthographic elevation colour-view and a perspective colour anaglyphe of the north wall of Corporates Chasma. The colour view consists of three HRSC orbits and extends over 162 km. The vertical relief is 9.92 km. The processed HRSC-nadir images and DTMs have spatial resolutions of 12.5 m/Pixel and 50 m/Pixel, respectively. The scenes shown here were created at the Department of Planetary Sciences and Remote Sensing, at the Institute of Geological Sciences of the Freie Universitaet Berlin. The perspective colour anaglyphe gives yet another rarely seen impression of this canyon wall. The horizontal extent is identical to the orthographic image. For this view a subset of a larger Valles Marineris HRSC-DTM at 100 m/Pixel was used.

Credits: For the orthographic elevation view a customised software was written by G. Michael. The Image- and 3D-Processing was performed by B. Schreiner, the DTM-Processing was performed by A. Dumke and D. Neu.

The High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) experiment on the ESA Mars Express Mission is led by the Principal Investigator (PI) Prof. Dr. Gerhard Neukum who also designed the camera technically. The science team of the experiment consists of 40 Co-Investigators from 33 institutions and 10 nations. The camera was developed at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) under the leadership of the PI G. Neukum and built in cooperation with industrial partners (EADS Astrium, Lewicki Microelectronic GmbH and Jena-Optronik GmbH). The experiment on Mars Express is operated by the DLR Institute of Planetary Research, through ESA/ESOC. The systematic processing of the HRSC image data is carried out at DLR. The scenes shown here were created by the PI-group at the Institute for Geological Sciences of the Freie Universitaet Berlin.
