A region of northwestern Gale crater about 70 kilometers square, including the Curiosity landing site and all of the terrain that it is likely to traverse during the mission's lifetime (and then some). At full resolution, the base map is a 10-meter-per-pixel mosaic of Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Context Camera images produced by Tanya Harrison. It has been colorized with Mars Express High Resolution Stereo Camera data with an original resolution of 25 meters per pixel.
