The High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) experiment onboard Mars Express is a pushbroom scanning instrument with 9 CCD line detectors mounted in parallel on the focal plane. Its unique feature is the ability to nearly simultaneously obtain imaging data of a specific site at high resolution, with along-track triple stereo, with four colours, and at five different phase angles, thus avoiding any time-dependent variations of the observing conditions. An additional super-resolution channel (SRC) - a framing device - yields nested-in images in the meter-range. The spatial resolution from the nominal periapsis altitude of 250 km is 10 m/pixel for the HRSC proper and 2.3 m/pixel for the SRC. The HRSC will make major contributions to the areas of geosciences, atmospheric sciences, photogrammetry/cartography, and spectrophotometry of Mars. The instrument will obtain images containing morphologic and topographic information at high spatial and vertical resolution allowing the improvement of the Martian cartographic data base down to scales of 1:50,000. After 14 months in orbit around Mars, the HRSC has covered nearly 20% of the martian surface at a resolution of 10 m - 40 m per pixel in stereo and color. We will show high-resolution color stereo products (3D and perspective views, digital terrain models, video animations) from imagery obtained during the first year in orbit around Mars and first results from the analyses of this imagery by the international Co-Investigator Team. The major volcanoes and structures which show the signs of fluvial, hydrothermal, and glacial activity have been investigated in detail, the atmospheric properties over the areas imaged have been analysed, color properties of the surface materials have been assessed and all data have been reduced to geometrically and radiometrically calibrated image swaths, which in most cases have been map-projected and processed to extract digital terrain information. All data obtained over the first six months of the orbital phase have been put in final archival form for distribution to the general community through the ESA and NASA science data archives.
