Mosaics from the Mariner 4 mission to Mars

Images were processed from the scanned data available here: On the overlapping areas of adjacent frames color was computed, as the images were obtained using a Red/Green - Green/Red filter sequence. It was also possible to match the visible features to a Mars map and reconstruct the full strip of Mars images, from limb to terminator.
