This map of Mars indicates locations of new craters that have excavated ice (blue) and those that have not (red). Albedo information comes from NASA's Mars Odyssey orbiter, and the map comes from NASA's Mars Global Surveyor orbiter.
This pair of maps based on albedo information from NASA's Mars Odyssey orbiter and topographical information from NASA's Mars Global Surveyor orbiter indicates locations of confirmed sites of recurrent slope linea on Mars.
Landing Area Narrowed for 2016 InSight Mission to Mars
This topographic map shows four semifinalist sites located close together in the Elysium Planitia region of Mars; the mission InSight will study the Red Planet's interior to advance understanding of the processes that formed and shaped the rocky planets.
Martian Features Formed When Material Moves Downslope
As on the Earth, many processes can move material down a Martian slope. This graphic compares seven different types of features observed on Mars that appear to result from material flowing or sliding or rolling down slopes.
This image from NASA's Mars Global Surveyor and Mars Odyssey spacecraft shows the context for orbital observations of exposed rocks that had been buried on Mars. The area is dominated by the Huygens crater, which is about the size of Wisconsin.
This image, combining data from two instruments aboard NASA's Mars Global Surveyor, depicts an orbital view of the north polar region of Mars. To the right of center, a large canyon, Chasma Boreale, almost bisects the white ice cap.
Wind-Related Topography in Phoenix's Region of Mars (Animation)
This image indicated NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander landing area on Mars to a topographical map indicating relative elevations in the landing region prior to landing. The elevations could have affected wind patterns at the site.
This image maps out the travels of NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity, from is landing site at Eagle Crater to the rim of Victoria Crater about six miles (9.7 kilometers) away in September of 2006.
This stereoscopic picture of NASA's Mars Odyssey spacecraft was created from two views of that spacecraft taken by the Mars Orbiter Camera on NASA's Mars Global Surveyor. 3D glasses are necessary to view this image.
