NASA's put up some stunning flyover movies of the Martian landscape, made with high-power cameras:

The three-dimensional information is obtained by taking pairs of images from slightly different vantage points as the spacecraft orbits the Red Planet.

This data is used to create 3D models of the planet, allowing virtual flyover animations to be produced. "This is close to what you'd see hang gliding over the area," says Randolph Kirk of the United States Geological Survey in Flagstaff, Arizona, who leads the 3D mapping team.
This is really sweet stuff.
