we know if slant all my the among if uh live in Hong Kong for Mars Express there was already a quiet with
knowledge about the the global shape of Mars derived from a laser a tutor measurements but these hours just derived among Ground what was missing
was area based coverage by high-resolution images that could allow for interests
he was the 1st Eros and the was supplied kantor
terrorism and we were able
to derive from these data Digital in equation models
was 10 times higher resolution than what was the way the world from the laser experiment and this is done
at the planned series gave means with
global coverage the
processor for deriving digital innovation models and image maps for starting from the decoded draw data
very complex this process
has Woodward who things
1st we need it has cooperated very accurate it means determined surfaced points with an accuracy of few meters from an orbit
taped of 400 kilometers and 2nd it
has to be able to workers really a large data Williams that them From the global
coverage of the high-resolution
off terrain models allow others to study much smaller Leaf demands of the surface for example Delta deposits sports car and there are exactly 3
D geometry and there is also another aspect of this very important was these
data and this is that we are able to give them the global
coordinates for each point we're imaging is is a very
important issue if it comes to woo combining data from
different data sources images from other sends us for example put
imposing them and combining the information for each 1
last career as it emissions received played an important role in selecting
the landing site because literacy data are important to tide the very high-resolution images which are needed for landing
site planning was the global coordinate system this will also be done for the next
lending listened of ourselves as cold in such a you doing
