Olympus Mons

Is this a real image of Olympus Mons, the highest mountain on planet Mars (which is at the same time the largest mountain in the solar system)?

The image has been digitally rendered with software called Terragen by Kees Veenenbos. NASAs Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter data was used. See Veenenbos’s Mars renderings 2003.
