    How did you get your hands on the source images? Did you hack into NASA's computer, intercept the transmissions from Mars or just ask nicely?

    This is part of a stereo pair, and will eventually be posted to www.3dpan.org Will open in
a new tab or window. They come from the Mars Orbital Observer and are part of the HiRise project. The images are in JPEG2000 format and are huge, so converting them to something that can be used on Gigapan is very challenging. The stereo pair to this image has been converted to a Tiff, but it breaks the file definition size barrier and nothing will work with it... THe source is here pds-imaging.jpl.nasa.gov Will open in

    Also there is a question about scale... any idea how wide the field of view is here?

    Jason, I just highlighted a portion of this image on my blog: blogs.agu.org/mountainbeltway/2010 /11/19/is-this-an-angular-unconformity-on-mars&nbs p;Will
open in a new tab or window/And a reader asked for a clarification: "A 3d view of this would help a lot: any idea what the HiRISE image ID is, and if it’s part of a stereo pair?" Can you point us to the source imagery, either here of via a comment on the blog post? Thanks, Callan
