Aram Dorsum Morphostratigraphic map shapefiles

Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This dataset contains GIS shapefiles from a project to map the Aram Dorsum region of Mars. The area was a candidate ExoMars Rover landing site.
The dataset is a morphostratigraphic map, made using remote sensing data (6 m/pixel greyscale image basemap).
The zip file contains:
1) Unit_polygons.shp: the morphostratigraphic units as polygon shapefiles (plus a Units_Aram.lyr layer file to use if you want to maintain the same approximate symbology we did)
2) Unit_oultines.shp: simple outlines of these polygons. We did not specify contact types in this mapping exercise but these could be useful if you wish to specify contact types yourself.
3) Structure_etc.shp: which contains minor features such as smaller channels and ridges, crate rims, etc, that are too small to represented as polygons, or would be inappropriate to be represented a polygons.
