Caption: Topography of Mars. Animation of a rotating Mars globe showing surface elevation, colour-coded with lowlands in blue and highlands in red and white. Vast volcanoes, including Olympus Mons, appear white, and the southern hemisphere is characterised by heavily cratered areas, in contrast with the sparsely cratered plains of the northern hemisphere. This image was created using data from the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft's Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter.
