October 15, 2005: New Images and New Coloring Technique On Display at the Mars Art Gallery

Five new images of Mars have been added to the Mars Art Gallery. Two of these images were created using a novel coloring technique developed by the artist.

The new images are all located in the Orbital Gallery. The images added are:

Of the five new images added, two were created using a new coloring technique created by the artist for colorizing Mars Global Surveyor Narrow Angle Camera images. It is important to note that all pictures taken by the Mars Global Surveyor Narrow Angle Camera are grayscale images with 256 gray levels from full white at one end of the range to full black at the other end. The two images created using this new coloring technique are the Martian Shark Teeth Dunes and Magnificent Desolation images. Three examples of the way in which Mars Global Surveyor Narrow Angle Camera images are typically colored are the Martian Crater image on display here and the Layered Outcrops of Far West Candor Chasma and Sediment History Preserved in Gale Crater Central Mound images on the NASA JPL web site.
