3D view (anaglyph image) of Nili Fossae
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. In the southwest of the region (lower left), one of the grabens of Nili Fossae, which is over 1000 metres deep and has a striking, box-like profile, can be seen. The craters in this region are also especially striking. The large crater on the right contains a depression surrounded by hills that is thought to have been caused in a steam explosion during the formation of the crater.
