Perspective view of Tinto Vallis

This com­put­er-gen­er­at­ed per­spec­tive view of Tin­to Val­lis was cre­at­ed us­ing da­ta ac­quired by the High Res­o­lu­tion Stereo Cam­era (HRSC) on board ESA's Mars Ex­press space­craft. Ac­quired dur­ing or­bit 11,497 and cen­tred at around three de­grees south and 109 de­grees north, the im­age has a ground res­o­lu­tion of about 22 me­tres per pix­el. This per­spec­tive view shows the mouth of Tin­to Val­lis, with its U-shaped cross sec­tion, in­dica­tive of sap­ping. The top left of the im­age is the pe­riph­ery of a 100-kilo­me­tre-wide crater, the floor of which is lit­tered with mesas and buttes.

This computer-generated perspective view of Tinto Vallis was created using data acquired by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board ESA's Mars Express spacecraft. Acquired during orbit 11,497 and centred at around three degrees south and 109 degrees north, the image has a ground resolution of about 22 metres per pixel. This perspective view shows the mouth of Tinto Vallis, with its U-shaped cross section, indicative of sapping. The top left of the image is the periphery of a 100-kilometre-wide crater, the floor of which is littered with mesas and buttes.
