This animation shows the edge of the Gale crater interior mound. It was created from NASA's HiRISE DTM and image data. Gale crater is a potential MSL(Mars Science Laboratory) landing site which is due to launch in 2011.
The spatial resolution is 1 meter for the altimetry data and 0.5 meters for the image data.
There is no vertical exageration.
The animation was created using Mars Explorer and was captured in realtime.
