OK folks. I have to admit I'm starting to feel a little overwhelmed in HiRISE images already, and I know the tap hasn't even been turned fully on yet! There is just so much territory to be looked at.

To help us all see just a little bit more I propose that we start a 'Picture of the day' type thing (not necessarily one per day, the more the merrier smile.gif ) of HiRISE screen sized sub-images. Not necessarily the most amazing bits, but a bit random, I find myself quite drawn to the less obvious bits that no one may have seen yet. wink.gif

I'm going to use the same filenames as the original images appended with approximate pixel coordinates of the sub-image so that it can be found easily in the original.

James

"Lot of FLR's lying around there..."

...and they seem to flock together as well. I think we need a massive swearing box in this thread!

I've changed my mind - separate discussion thread would be a pain - threads merged.

Not far from the first image you get to the big feature of the image, a steep scarp up onto the North polar ice cap. I see that a nice dry stone wall has been build around the bottom. wink.gif

I'm a fan of the "enigmatic ice mound"... smile.gif

No kidding. Speaking of "gullies". If someone wants to break this one open that center part with the gullies would be nice to see at full res.

No, it's just a tad bit harder than we expected... As I understand in it's current form it works as most JP2 clients work, but the full JPIP capability is still forthcoming.

Thanks James. There's a roughly stitched seem in that image that I realigned (below), although artifacts along the seem are still visible.

I wonder if anyone is going to claim those gullies are caused by flowing sand, high atop the ice mound.

To me, what at first look like gullies, or large rivules, look like something else up close: Undercut ledges at the edge of domed mounds (of ice?). Very small rivules do seem to be coming out from under the ledges.

I imagine a rover would see something like this (minus the liquid water of course... and the people):

What about something like Vasquez Rocks poking up through the Enigmatic Ice Mound?
