ISPRS 2003 Cartography with HRSC on Mars Express
The Mars Express mission, which is expected to be launched in May/June 2003, will bring the "High Resolution Stereo Camera" (HRSC) into an orbit around the planet Mars. This research program, which is guided by Prof. Dr. Gerhard Neukum (Free University Berlin) as the Principal Investigator, has been particular designed to meet the demands of stereophotogrammerty and cartography. The camera will provide multispectral digital image data of high resolution (up to 10m) and systematic stereo coverage of the Martian surface. Thus, the mission will start a new era of topographic and thematic mapping of planet Mars. Furthermore, the "Super Resolution Channel" of the camera will acquire image data of extremely high resolution (up to 2 m) from smaller areas of particular interest.
