Mars Express: HRSC
The HRSC (High/Super
Resolution Stereo Colour Imager) is a stereoscopic
camera that photographs the Martian surface to reveal
detail as small as 2 m. The images are used to produce a
geological map showing the location of different
minerals and rock types. The HRSC Principal Investigator is
Prof. Gerhard Neukum,
Freie Universitšt, Berlin, Germany.
The primary source for HRSC data is the
ESA Planetary Science Archive.
Through a cooperative agreement between ESA and NASA,
the PDS Geosciences Node is
hosting copies of the HRSC data archives. The PDS
Imaging Node also has copies.
