Description

This colour-coded topographic view shows Terra Cimmeria, a region found in the southern highlands of 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 11 December 2018 during orbit 18904.

The ground resolution is approximately 13 metres per pixel and the images are centred at about 171° East and 40° South. North is to the right.
