This radar map of the area around the North Pole of Venus is color-coded to show surface elevations. The Pole is near the center of the image. The reddish highland region just below center is the "continent" Ishtar Terra. The bright white area on Ishtar Terra is Maxwell Montes, the highest mountain chain on Venus. This image was created using radar data from the Magellan spacecraft.
