This is a red-blue anaglyph. Use 3D glasses (red over left eye, blue over right) to see it in 3D, or scroll down for other stereo or flicker gif versions.

3D view of Hidden Valley and surrounding area, Curiosity landing site A digital terrain model shows how "Hidden Valley" (at upper right) and the region near it consists of sand ripple-filled lows cut into a ledge-forming caprock. The region pictured here is 750 meters wide by 500 meters tall.

Data are from this DEM. The positions of right- and left-eye images have been adjusted to decrease the parallax -- the original DEM had a lot of slope in this region, making the separation between left and right eyes headache-inducing.

Stereo versions

Stereo images are composed of one image for the left eye and one image for the right eye. Crossed-eye stereo presents the right-eye image on the left, and left-eye image on the right. Parallel-eye stereo presents the left-eye image on the left, and the right-eye image on the right. A flicker gif presents the left- and right-eye images alternately.
