HiRISE digital terrain models (DTMs) and anaglyph images over the Opportunity field site Digital Terrain Models (DTMs) are high-resolution topographic data computed from stereo pairs of HiRISE images. For Opportunity, there are only two DTMs, outlined in blue on this map. There are also two sets of stereo pairs that have been converted into anaglyphs for 3D viewing, outlined in green on this map. Finally, there is a stereo pair taken over Santa Maria Crater that has not yet been converted to an anaglyph, but could be, marked in purple on this map. Opportunity's traverse is marked in yellow.

My wife and I went to Florida to watch Opportunity launch. We were there for three weeks and needed every day of it - the launch was scheduled for two days after we arrived and eventually got away three nights before we had to go home. On launch night, when the count was stopped at T-minus seven seconds, our hearts nearly stopped too, but the problem was fixed and, forty minutes later, away! The sight and sound of that glorious rocket rising into a clear night sky will stay with us forever and, nearly fourteen years later, "our" rover is still working. You have to hand it to the JPL - they really know how to get the mileage out of their rovers.
