Martian Crater Gallery Index

Last Updated September 25, 2006.

This page is an index to images in which Martian craters are the primary subject. These pictures have been created using images of Mars taken by various Mars orbiting satellites, like the Viking Orbiters and the Mars Global Surveyor. All of these images have been digitally enhanced and manipulated in a variety of ways to varying extents. With respect to the color images, please be aware that these images are not meant to provide scientifically accurate true color portrayals of the surface of Mars. The source data for most of these images contained no color information - only albedo data. Therefore, true color is a matter of conjecture.
