I think that NASA chooses their locations based on more than topographical imagery that may or may not be what it appears to be. I love those images,
do not get me wrong, some of them the official explanations is enough for me to agree with mainstream and others; not as much.
They would choose their landing locations in the middle of the desert because it is probably easier to land/miss rough terrain and because they are
looking for liquids and organic materials in one place they think (for example with Curiosity) was most likely to have it in Mars ancient past.
Thanks for posting the images though, its always nice to see them and remind myself how exotic the other planets are in comparison to what we know
here on earth.
The Rovers have had different landing sites, on different sides of the planet... It just seems like they are dumping everyone in the same desert
because (well face it) Mars is almost completely desert. *lol*
