3D view of Curiosity's landing site from HiRISE

For a 3D view of the landing site, HiRISE took two photos from slightly different angles. The white dot marks the spot where Curiosity landed. The scale at full resolution is about 1 meter per pixel. North is about 7 degrees to the right of up (the images are aligned along Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's orbital path). More formats: Left stereo | Right stereo

This is a red-blue anaglyph. Use 3D glasses (red over left eye, blue over right) to see it in 3D.
