False color image of the topography of the region around Mawrth Vallis
False color image of the topography of the region around Mawrth Vallis Digital terrain models of the Martian surface can be generated with an accuracy of up to 10 meters per pixel from the nadir channel directed vertically onto the Martian surface and the stereo channels of the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on Mars Express. In this color-coded image, the absolute elevations above a reference level, the Aeroid (derived from Ares, the Greek word for Mars), are well depicted. These elevation values can be read based on the colour scale at the top right of the image. For the full-resolution version, see here. ESA / DLR / FU Berlin
