Is that 100 meter or 100 foot contour intervals? And where did they find sea level to assign the 000 contour?

Pfft, as if Martians still use feet. Only backwards nations live in the dark ages.

One would presume that since the scale bar is in kilometres that the contour interval would also reflect the metric system.

tRicky, one would assume. Don't I recall a certain lander catastrophically crashing into Mars because someone made just that assumption?

I never assume to presume.

The delta area NW of the landing site sort of reminds me of the scablands in Washington.
