Topographical view Argyre Planitia

November 1, 2012
This colour-coded plan view is based on a digital terrain model of the region, from which the topography of the landscape can be derived. The colour coding highlights the difference between the elevation of the hills to the right of the image and the depth of the Argyre Planitia region as well as Hooke Crater itself. This topographic map also increases the visibility and contrast of the dune features within Hooke Crater. Centred at around 45°S and 314°E, the image has a ground resolution of about 22 m per pixel.
