Description

This colour-coded topographic view shows Aurorae Chaos, a large area of chaotic terrain located in the Margaritifer Terra region on Mars.

Lower parts of the surface are shown in blues and purples, while higher altitude regions show up in whites, yellows, and reds, as indicated on the scale to the top right. This view is based on a digital terrain model of the region, from which the topography of the landscape can be derived. It comprises data obtained by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on Mars Express on 31 October 2018 during orbit 18765.

The ground resolution is approximately 14 m/pixel and the images are centred at about 327°E/11°S. North is to the right.
