Before the observer can view the surface of Mars in 3D, the data from the stereo camera needs to be checked and processed. Thomas Roatsch (standing) and Frank Preusker are on the team that has been working on this project since the first image of Mars was acquired seven years ago. To date, the HRSC team has processed 227 gigabytes of raw data into 2.7 terabytes of cartographically accurate imagery data, and 670 gigabytes into ultra-precise digital terrain models.
