An animation over the Mars Pathfinder landing site in Ares Valles created using HiRISE digital elevation model (DEM) data. The terrain has accurate vertical scaling and is not exaggerated. The Mars Pathfinder 'Presedential' Panorama is used to show the local terrain in context. A black marker-post marks the landing site during the fly-around.

DEM data generated by Pete Grindrod and Doug Ellison using ISIS3 and SocetSet at the UCL RPIF, London.
