Topographic Map of the Western Region of Dao Vallis in Hellas Planitia, Mars; MTM 500k -40/082E OMKT

By Mark R. Rosiek, Bonnie L. Redding, and Donna M. Galuszka


thumbnail sketch of the map

This map, compiled photogrammetrically from Viking Orbiter stereo image pairs, is part of a series of topographic maps of areas of special scientific interest on Mars. Contours were derived from a digital terrain model (DTM) compiled on a digital photogrammetric workstation using Viking Orbiter stereo image pairs with orientation parameters derived from an analytic aerotriangulation. The image base for this map employs Viking Orbiter images from orbits 406 and 363. An orthophotomosaic was created on the digital photogrammetric workstation using the DTM compiled from stereo models.
