Mars Flyover Based on MOLA Data for the Carl Sagan Lecture

This visualization of the topography of Mars was created for Maria Zuber's Carl Sagan Lecture. The camera flies over several areas of interest. The south pole, Tharsis Rise, the north pole, and Valles Marineris. This animation was created using Maya and Renderman, using MOLA Topography data. The colors represent height - dark blue is about 8km deep and white is over 14km high (as measured from an arbitrary location picked as 'sea-level').
