January 19, 2005
The perspective view of the Hellas basin on Mars was calculated from the digital terrain model derived from the stereo and colour information of the HRSC image data from ESA's Mars Express. The image shows a portion of the northern region of the Hellas basin at 68Â° E longitude and 29Â° S latitude. It was taken during orbit 488 with a resolution of 18.3 metres per pixel.
