Mars from the Ground Up Mars Society

Stunning views of Mars as some future planetary hiker might see the Red Planet have been produced and posted at Planete Mars — the French chapter of the Mars Society. The collaborative efforts of Adrian Lark (3D-Planet, Great Britain) and Olivier de Goursac (Association Planete Mars public outreach manager) transformed data supplied by the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter instrument flying aboard the Mars Global Surveyor into some breathtaking scenes of Valles Marineris as seen from ground level.
