The colour-coded topographic view shows relative heights and depths of terrain in the Aurorae Chaos and Ganges Chasma region Mars. Red/white represents the highest terrain, and blues and purples show lower terrain.
The image is based on a digital terrain model of the region, from which the topography of the landscape can be derived. The region was imaged by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on Mars Express on 16 July 2015 during orbit 14653. The image is centred on 8ºS/320ºE. The ground resolution is about 17 m per pixel.
