Valles Marineris - Perspective
It was processed by the Institute for Planetary Research of the German Aerospace Centre (DLR), also involved in the development of the camera, and by the Institute of Geosciences of the Freie Universität Berlin.
It shows a portion of a 1700 km long and 65 km wide swath which was taken in south-north direction across the vast canyon system on Mars - Valles Marineris.
It is the first image of this size that shows the surface of Mars in high resolution (12 metres per pixel), in colour and in 3D. This perspective view is computer-generated from the original image data.
