Surface and contours

False colour image obtained from radar data from the orbiter Pioneer-Venus. Colours indicate the altitude – red being the highest and blue being the lowest. A few geographical markers are named: in the north-west, the Ishtar Terraand Lakshmi Planum plateaus culminate in Mount Maxwell; south of the equator the Aphrodite Terra plateau, with Maat Mons at its eastern tip; in the south east Alpha Regio and to the west Beta Regio; in light blue we see the vast plains of Venus and in dark blue the deepest depressions.
