Newcomer / Intro Planet Surface Types

Hello Commanders,
I was wondering if any one you know whether the surface of a planet is smooth, semi-smooth, or very harsh terrain from orbital information on the planet?
Generally speaking if I am looking to surface skim a planet, would I be able to detect the terrain types from orbit before I head down just to find 2000 meter cliffs all over.
Thank you Commanders for any information on this.
It is black but let the stars guide you....o7
 
Hi. No, unfortunately this is not an information you can get anywhere. You have to go down and look.
Though with time you will learn to recognize certain features (visible from orbit) that indicate a general state of the terrain, down there. But it's more of a hunch than something solid.
