Abstract

This article presents the results of the project that aims to demonstrate the possibility of using images from space probes and satellite images for the analysis and creation of databases of spatial information systems. The introduction contains basic information about the planet Mars. The scope of work involves a combination of satellite images mosaic. On the basis of these images a 3D model was created, showing the landing place for Mars rovers. It presents the largest craters, canyons and other characteristic objects. All the information is contained in the database. Places that may be suitable for settlement have been determined on the basis of analyses carried out on a 3D model. The analysis took into account the temperature, slope inclination, the distance from craters and volcanoes and the occurrence of dust and sandstorms, as well as other factors favouring the colonization of the surface of Mars. The project was prepared to constitute a future basis for determining potential areas of habitation on Mars.
