NASA is all about Falsifying the data. PERIOD.
Remember that the Mars surface is officially suppose to be completely dry and devoid of life. Further, the atmosphere is suppose to be 95.35% carbon dioxide (CO2) with only a very tiny .03% of water vapor and super hard frozen to the tune of as much as –220º Fahrenheit or –140º Celsius. In other words it would be a race as to whether an unprotected Earth human out in the open there would be speedily killed by too much poisonous CO2 gas by many times over or quickly frozen to death.
Note that, even though all of the following evidence is in the official science data and available there for verification, you have never heard a peep out of NASA or JPL as to its existence. So this amounts to the hidden Mars that it appears someone in control does not wish you and I to know about or at least also ignore. Also note that I have added a slight bit of false color to these online images to increase clarity and the viewing comfort level. In any case, the high drama visual evidence is as follows.

Claiming that the interactive landing site simulator are actual photos from Curiosity is a deliberate misrepresentation. That is what makes the title of this thread and the videos in the OP a hoax.
I agree with the maker of that video, they just copied and pasted, and slightly altered pics and moved them around, so he was quite right when he said: you might as well take the image and throw it in the trash, for you don't know what you're looking at here.
Just one SNOW JOB AFTER ANOTHER. THEY ARE SUCH PSYCHOS! THEY ARE NOT OFF ANY HOOKS, BUT ANSWER FOR THIS.

But you know exactly what it is: it is an interactive map of the landing site made using CGI techniques. NASA makes this perfectly clear, it is the maker of the video who "forgets" to mention this.
Calm down.NASA are not the ones lying, at least in this case.
Where does NASA make this perfectly clear, i can't find this anywhere on the various Mars JPL websites.

This oblique view of Gale, and Mount Sharp in the center, is derived from a combination of elevation and imaging data from three Mars orbiters. The image combines elevation data from the High Resolution Stereo Camera on the European Space Agency’s Mars Express orbiter, image data from the Context Camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, and color information from Viking Orbiter imagery. There is no vertical exaggeration in the image. The view is looking toward the southeast. Mount Sharp rises about 5.5 kilometers (3.4 miles) above the floor of Gale Crater.
Arthur C. Clarke The image is so striking that there is no need to say anything about it -- it's obviously vegetation to any unbiased eye.
PS What about animal life?
AC If there is vegetation, it seems probable there are other life-forms as well.
Many of you around the world have likely seen the above Mars image recently circulating on the Internet and in the various news media. The source of this image is the MRO HiRISE science data and the strip is PSP_007962_2635 found at the above link. The media speculative hook is that the above evidence looks an awful lot like trees on Mars but isn't really. It's obviously a beautiful image with its colors and shadings produced at official level (I'm envious) and this visual impact is no doubt one of the main reasons why the media is so readily reporting on it.
It is obvious that this evidence is actively being orchestrated into the media and public perception at this time for some unknown reason. After all, this particular MRO image was acquired on 4/7/2008, so why now? A trap? Now my reporting here is not really going to fly in the face of this stated official position too strongly. Rather, I'm going to just be adding some information missing from this official reporting that is none-the-less in my opinion germane to any thinking person's consideration of this type of evidence....
It should be noted that the bell shaped "bottom" so often associated with certain trees here on Earth (Cypress come to mind) always seems to be located in the dune crest split depression. This of course reinforces the impression that these are rooted "trees" of some kind. Following are some sample closer images of this evidence that tends to support the look of trees.
My selection of the above 2nd–5th images tend to support the so called "tree" evidence look but they are not definitive in that regard. For example, note that if these are upright vertical formations where are their shadows? The problem is that I do not trust the imaging and suspect the shadows have been removed or at least subdued. Note the 4th image and what I've pointed out with the yellow arrows that may be remnant shadows not completely removed.
The net result is that the easily identified final fluffy smooth tampering applications tried but failed to completely hide the large dark blocks extending over the strip edges. It may give the impression that careless image tampering didn't quite hide civilization evidence in these spots. However, if any civilization evidence was ever at these locations, it was thoroughly hidden by the original grainy textured tampering which layers are so dense that nothing can be seen of even fairly large terrain features and the only things that can be seen are very large features like mountains, hills, impact craters, canyons, and finally the dark compression blocks.
In retrospect, as long as the secrecy agenda is inclined to deal with the cumbersome task of attempting to hide the truth they don't want us to know about via modifying and manipulating the original science data imaging on a massive scale, mistakes will be made just because of the sheer numbers and scale involved and small bits and pieces of truth may find its way through to us. However, when they convert over (and they will) to just making up and designing computer graphics generated terrain from scratch no longer needing to modify original exploration research imaging, even greater ignorance in our world societies and institutions will prevail.
The key will be when the data released for public consumption starts demonstrating really dramatic improvements in detail and clarity. Such "improvements" will be reported as due to advancements in camera, processing, and communications technology. Worse and most sickening, it will be believed and well received by a clueless mainstream with a preference to remain that way.
This image of it is beautiful isn't it. This appearance is a signature characteristic of the often visually stunning ESA Mars Express HRSC (High Resolution Stereo Camera) imaging as it is presented to the public and media. However, what we all need to be aware of is that this pretty picture for the public and media is partially art work and not be confused with the raw visual science data as seen by the Mars Express camera systems that would not have this information overlaid on it. This pretty look is accomplished right here on Earth by some heavy artificial processing and manipulation of the image to this effect.
