See the "m" in the color legend? Doesn't that mean "meters"? Isn't that image just showing that the lower the elevation, the bluer the color? That's what the legend suggests. It has nothing to do with the actual color of the surface, the colors are there to help you visualize surface elevations in a topographical sense.

Hah, that's ridiculous! Are you serious? Did you see the column 'HRSC layer' to the left? This layer is a raw composite image (RED, GREEN and BLUE channels of HRSC) on top of the elevation map. The thing is they purposely diminishing blue channel luminescence and call it Mars-like color approximation. And you say they aren't wrong with this approach? Why would you change the raw data? Out of a custom or what?
Now, I think the matter with color is settled for people with enough mind power to reason for themselves.

I think mars may have had life a long time ago. Could it be possible that mars may be haunted in some way? It would explain some of the strange mars anomalies.

Hi there!
Actually, OP, a few months ago I read an article about a private company wanting to send people to Mars. According to the article, the company said it could plan a mission like that in about fifteen years, and Mars would not be a stop along the way, but the people participating in this mission would colonize this planet, and were never to return to Earth. But they needed to be at least 65 years old, because the first people to inhabit there would die pretty quickly, due to intense radiation and difficult circumstances in general. But, if this were to happen, they would prepare the ground for a massive colonization of the planet. So I thought to myself: hey, this could be worth the risk! And it would be cool to die on Mars! Imagine being a pioneer on Mars, and preparing the ground for the survival of the human species on another planet! It would be a wonderful gift to humanity! And I really wanted to participate, if that were to happen! Right about then, I started imagining what it would be like, and I remember thinking to myself: hey, the caves of Mars (since it is a place completely unknown to us, and the first people there would have to discover it one way or another) will be even spookier than the caves here on Earth! And the whole thing, it's scary and spooky living on a planet practically undiscovered, which, on top of everything looks like that! So, I know exactly what you're talking about, and I 100% agree with you, to me, it looks a lot spooky!!! But I think I'd still pay it a visit, if I was given the chance

Hell I would probably join you in a visit to mars knowing I would be with a group most of the time and not by myself. I find mars interesting enough to explore and we are way over due for a trip to mars based on where we are in technological development and economic structure. We as humans are far behind in development.

Mars is freakin scary, especially considering the fact that it may still be inhabited. And the fact that if its not inhabited anymore, I wouldn't be surprised if it was haunted due to such a mass extinction.

Life on Mars would have migrated to Earth if it was intelligent. The rest would be underground, except for that which had extra thick outer shells.

As for terraforming Mars, it would not be that hard. For water, there is a vast frozen supply under the surface. Also, redirecting iceroids into impact zones would create liquid water and increase atmospheric pressure. Moving (very carefully), a large body about 1/4 the size of Mars into Mars orbit would cause the core to heat and liquify under stress. The core would "percolate" and start the dynamo effect creating a strong electromagnetic force protecting the planet from solar radiation. Then seeding would begin, followed by bacteria, insects, etc, to create rich soil. Trees would be next, and that would be followed by animal life, and man.

The planet would thrive for millions of years before the need to make any adjustments if at all.

Did you ever read The Mars Trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson?
