The snaps are in

For those who participated in the HiWish website (allowing users to choose areas of Mars to be photographed in high resolution by the HiRise aboard the MRO), the photographs are in. The first eight areas can be found here. The camera has snapped 13,000 images of various regions of Mars including some designated by students in the NASA Quest program. Nevertheless only around one percent of the Martian surface has been mapped in this way. NASA’s press release detailing the history of public participation in this kind of mission is here.

If you want to go to the original website and choose a region for HiRISE to zoom in on next, then it is here.
