Mars digital-image mosaic merged with color of the MC-26 quadrangle, Argyre region of Mars. The west-central part is marked by the large Argyre impact basin, defined by a rim of rugged mountain blocks that surrounds a nearly circular expanse of light-colored plains 800 km across. The large basin is surrounded by heavily cratered highlands. Latitude range -65 to -30 degrees, longitude range 0 to 60 degrees.
