The topography of Nili Fossae
This topographical map shows the Nili Fossae region of Mars, a part of the planet that hosts the future landing site for NASA's 2020 Mars Perseverance rover: Jezero crater (marked by a white star). The region's wider context on the martian surface is shown to the right of the frame. The colours represent the altitude of the surface, ranging from lower blues and greens to higher oranges and reds (as shown in the key to the top right). This image uses topographic and altimetric data from NASA's Mars Global Surveyor's Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA).
