The nadir channel of the DLR-operated HRSC camera system, the field of view of which is aligned perpendicular to the surface of Mars, and one of the four stereo channels can be used to produce anaglyph images. Viewed through red-blue (cyan) spectacles, they deliver a realistic, three-dimensional impression of the landscape, in which the two striking massifs in the basin of Juventae Chasma, found in the centre of the image, are particularly prominent. The impressive, precipitous cliff edge on the western reaches of the basin (parallel to the upper edge of the image) is equally imposing when seen in '3D'.
