Topographical context map of a part of the Utopia Planitia region

The im­ages were ac­quired by the High Res­o­lu­tion Stereo Cam­era (HRSC) dur­ing Mars Ex­press Or­bit 15,804 on 21 June 2016. The im­age res­o­lu­tion is 15 me­tres per pix­el. The cen­tre of the im­age is lo­cat­ed at 101 de­grees east and 39 de­grees north. The net­work of huge frac­tures in the Utopia Plani­tia re­gion is linked to the past ex­is­tence of an ocean in the North­ern Low­lands of Mars.

The images were acquired by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) during Mars Express Orbit 15,804 on 21 June 2016. The image resolution is 15 metres per pixel. The centre of the image is located at 101 degrees east and 39 degrees north. The network of huge fractures in the Utopia Planitia region is linked to the past existence of an ocean in the Northern Lowlands of Mars.
