This paper presents a wide range of research and processing results in the area of multi-resolution orbital data co-registration, multiresolution ground 3D reconstruction, and orbit-to-ground data fusion, achieved within the EU-FP7 PRoVisG and PRoViDE project. We focus on three NASA rover missions, MER-A, MER-B, and MSL, to provide examples of automated methods for producing coregistered, multi-resolution 3D products. We highlight the mis-registration discovered between current HiRISE to HRSC datasets, CTX to HRSC and HiRISE to CTX co- results, wide baseline stereo reconstruction results of rover imagery, ground-to-orbit coregistration, i.e. reconstructed wide baseline ground ORI and HiRISE ORI co-registration, and extensive exploitation of the coregistered datasets in visualisation and interactive web-GIS.
