This dataset comprises the unit map derived from 3D analysis of Sakarya Vallis in Gale crater, Mars. The units are named Package 1–7. These packages have been extrapolated from morpho-stratigraphic analysis of a HiRISE scene in PRo3D. They have been further extrapolated using underlying image data. Included here is a shapefile representing the marker bed (Milliken et al. 2010) in Gale crater. The "CDD" refers to the Central Debris Deposit, identified by Hughes (2021).

The structural data represents dip measurements along the boundaries of these packages within the feature; the "sub-package" data represent layering within the packages. For more on how dip is calculated in PRo3D, see https://pro3d.space/.

Finally, the profiles mark the locations where topographic profiles were extracted for constructing cross-sections, as discussed in the thesis Persaud (2022).

These data are intended to be displayed with the HiRISE ORI (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.5808371) and CTX ORI mosaic (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.5808357) over Sakarya Vallis, and over the basemap over the northwest of Aeolis Mons (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.5808381).
