3D view of Hellespontus Montes

3D view of Hellespontus Montes
The nadir channel, which is directed vertically down onto the surface of Mars, and one of the four stereo channels in the DLR-operated HRSC camera system, can be used to create anaglyph images, which produce a realistic, three-dimensional view of the landscape when viewed with red/blue or red/green glasses. This gives a beautiful view of the landscape’s terraced structure. The high image resolution of 17 metres per pixel shows even the smallest topographical details such as dunes, rock slides, individual layers in the craters and small gorges.
