Abstract
<p>This dataset represents an update of previous global maps of Martian fluvial systems. We included all the valleys longer than 20 km and mapped them as vector-based polylines within the QGIS software, using the more recent and, to date, the best resolution THEMIS (Thermal Emission Imaging Spectrometer) daytime IR mosaic (100 m/pixel). In addition, we used, where necessary (for small-scale systems and valleys with high erosion), CTX (Contex Camera) data, with a resolution up to 6 m/pixel. The imagery data were coupled with the MOLA (Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter Mosaic) mosaic which has a spatial resolution of 463 m/pixel.&nbsp;At low latitudes, we used an equid...
