In this paper we introduce the Mars planet-wide 3D surface modelling work performed within the EU FP-7 iMars project which completed last year. In this report, we describe a fully automated multi-resolution DTM processing chain developed by the Imaging Group at UCL-MSSL, called CASP-GO based upon the heritage NASA Ames Stereo Pipeline (ASP) and the Gotcha image matcher. The CASP-GO system has been integrated into the Microsoft Azure cloud computing environment and successfully processed ~5,300 unique CTX DTMs covering ~19% of the Martian surface at 18m resolution.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
