A Different View of ‘Inca City’

We see high resolution non-map projected color mosaic images of the Martian South Pole from HiRISE, but with the Context Camera (On Planet Four: Terrains we show the diced up CTX images), you can get a wide view perspective. This is the main drive of Planet Four: Terrains, to use the wide-field  Context Camera (CTX) images to find new areas of interest that we can then explore and study in detail.

On the original Planet Four, we’ve spent a lot of time over the past two years focusing on the region informally known as ‘Inca City.’ With CTX can you can get a bird’s eye view of Inca City and its structure. Check out the image below. You’ll notice the unique pattern of interconnecting rectilinear ridges that  the region is known for.
