ISPRS 1999 Stereogrammetric Mapping on Mars: Promise, Progress, and Problems
To assist in landing site selection, we are compiling a suite of stereo images of potential landing sites for the 1998 and 2001 Mars landers. From these, we are using automated stereogrammetry software to map the topography of these sites at higher resolution than previously available. One our tasks is to integrate stereo-based topography with MGS MOLA laser-based topography. These two data sets compliment each other and can lead to a higher level of understanding of Mars than would use of either dataset by itself. In this presentation, we report on the success of these efforts, and some of the lessons learned.
