HiRISE Comparison

The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera will provide the highest-resolution images yet from martian orbit. These high resolution images will enable scientists to resolve 1-meter (about 3-foot) sized objects on Mars and to study the morphology (surface structure) in a much more comprehensive manner than ever before.
