The project was consolidated thanks to a collaboration between the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) mission. United State (a pot).
“The Global CTX Mosaic of Mars” is the name of this new interactive map, which represents each region of Mars with a unique level of sharpness. This achievement becomes a breakthrough in high-profile investigations.
“Slopes, impact craters and dust swirl tracks are captured in exquisite detail in a new red planet mosaic of 110,000 MRO images,” Caltech said.
What can be found on the map?
Within the interactive map, different points related to this important planet can be noted, such as the Gale and Jezero craters, which have been studied in order to locate water on this type of surface.
Additionally, with the creation of the map, some 87,000 photographs taken over many years were collected, providing a perspective never seen before.
To get all this data, it’s done by a rover from about 250 miles up from the surface of Mars, where despite the distance, the lenses it has produce an amazing degree of detail for anyone who appreciates it.
