Topography around the Zhurong Rover
A digital terrain model (DTM) has been created from a pair of stereo pairs (4 images total) including the Zhurong rover landing site in southern Utopia Planitia.

The total relief over this area is only 23 meters (75 feet), so it is very flat, but reveals an overall slope down to the north. There are elevated mesas to the southwest, separated by troughs. Most of the craters are likely of impact origin, but the crater on top of a cone in the north central area probably formed by the eruption of either magma (in the form of cinders) or muddy debris. There are many smaller mounds that could also be volcanoes.

The first image shows color-coded altimetry combined with shaded relief derived from the DTM. A white X marks the landing site. The second image is a perspective view of the cratered cone in the north central region, as the rover could see it, with no vertical exaggeration.
