This 3D image was taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) onboard ESA's Mars Express orbiter, in orbit 18 on 14 January 2004 from a height of 275 km. The resolution is 12 m per pixel.
The location is on the Martian equator north of Valles Marineris between 1° South to 2.5° North and 323° East. The area is 50 km across and shows mesas and cliffs as well as flow features indicating erosion by the action of flowing water. In this landscape view North is on the right. The 3D effect is only seen with the use of red/green 3D glasses.
