The description of the image does not state it is a rendered or computer generated height map but that may be wrong as I am not defending any
statement's merely offering something to mull over,
the ESA statement concerning the image is as follow's
This perspective view, taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board ESA’s Mars Express spacecraft, shows Crater Hale on Mars.
I have a feeling You may be correct as there is no sky in the image unless it was cropped out.
I have taken the liberty of downloading the image you redirected to and though it does look lower res there are no rectilinear or other structure
visible in it, early mariner and Viking probe's were state of the art of there time but the resolution for the famous face image was so low at the
altitude of there orbit you could lose several heavy dumper trucks in just one pixel, let's just say for hypothesis that these mark's were the Martian
equivalent of crop mark's, i.e. discoloured ground from buried remains' they would simply not have shown up on one of those but this image does show
cratering to a greater extent than is visible from the ESA mars express image's render and as it is the original image well that close's this thread
and answer's several question's thank you.

the square and rectilinear structure are therefore a product of both the stretching and the quality of the model,
Maybe we look out there because we are afraid of being alone or just want to know we can achieve more than we have.
