Mars Express sees the Red Planet in three dimensions
One of the most important aspects of the ESA Mars Express mission is the high resolution topographic mapping it is able to produce of our nearest planetary neighbour. For more than four years, the DLR-operated High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board the probe has been producing these 3D maps. A new high-resolution "Digital Terrain Model" dataset that is about to be released onto the internet, will allow researchers to obtain new and better 3D information about Mars.
