Description

This map is based on data from NASA’s Viking mission. It shows the slice of Mars captured by the High Resolution Stereo Camera aboard ESA’s Mars Express spacecraft to celebrate the mission’s 15th anniversary: the intriguing and once-active Tharsis province. 

Included in this labelled view is the extensive canyon system of Valles Marineris, the web-like system of fissures comprising Noctis Labyrinthus, four volcanoes, and the northern polar cap.

This map was created by the Planetary Sciences and Remote Sensing group at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany.
