  • $\begingroup$ I apologize, but this isn't a worldbuilding question, so it's inevitably going to be closed. Our focus is dealing with the rules governing fictional worlds. If NASA doesn't have the data you're looking for, then you might try our sister sites Astronomy.SE and Space Exploration.SE. $\endgroup$ – JBH May 5 '18 at 1:53

  • $\begingroup$ surely, the word you are looking for is "topographic" not "bump maps" :) $\endgroup$ – EveryBitHelps May 5 '18 at 21:31
  • $\begingroup$ Also try the US geological society. at the very least, they seem to have some topographic maps of mars. see this 2MB pdf file-link pubs.usgs.gov/imap/i2782/i2782_sh1.pdf $\endgroup$ – EveryBitHelps May 5 '18 at 21:31
