Re: High res mars maps and 3d terrain

I need a very high res map of terra sabaea where i should be able to spot craters a few km across or better, any ideas where i can find it?

Also i need information on the same territory to allow me to make a 3dmodel, any ideas where i could find such information?

For more high resolution topographic maps based on the MOLA dataset

New Online Spectrometer Map

A new online map lets visitors explore Mars’ past through a collection of high-resolution observations from one of the most powerful spectrometers ever sent to the Red Planet. Evidence of ancient bodies of water, flowing rivers and groundwater peeks out from beneath layers of hardened magma and dust—testaments to Mars’ progression through wet, volcanic and dry eras.

The data come from the Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM), on board NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. CRISM’s primary mission is to search for signs that liquid water once existed on Mars by identifying minerals that form only in the presence of water. Molecules of water trapped in these minerals leave particular patterns in the sunlight that reflects off of them and into CRISM, which senses up to 544 “colors,” or wavelengths, of light.

A team of researchers at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), which built and operates the instrument, has converted the complex CRISM data into easy-to-understand composite images. “The images clearly show the distribution of certain minerals, which tells us about the planet’s history,” says Scott Murchie of APL, CRISM’s principal investigator. “This map moves the information out of the domain of specialists and makes the very latest Mars research accessible to anyone with an interest in the planet.” The online collection currently includes more than 900 observations, and more are being added as the team prepares them.

The high-resolution map can be found on the “CRISM Data Products: Viewing Features on Mars” Web site, at http://crism-map.jhuapl.edu/, and is best viewed with Firefox 2.0, Netscape 7.2, or Internet Explorer 7.0, or better.

Shame there isnt any more accurate resolution map.
