I posted a comment in the Opportunity route map thread about this, but I can go into more detail here.
I have mapped the activities of Opportunity from Eagle crater to the present location, first for my Atlas of Mars Exploration Vol. 2, and more recently as new work for a future Vol. 3. Also, since I took over the Opportunity route map thread from Eduardo and others, many of those maps have appeared here on a sol by sol basis.
But what do you do if you want a convenient single source for Opportunity's travels? Our thread gives you that, but you have to look through more than 200 pages of maps. The mission website is similar - maps go back nearly to the beginning but over hundreds of web pages. Also the maps are in different styles, by different people, with ou without (mostly without) feature names etc.
In a way my big Atlas serves this purpose - from sol 1 to sol 3700 it presents maps of activities, with names, all in a common format and a standard scale but with lots of extra larger-scale maps where needed. But I am well aware that it is expensive and out of most people's individual price range. And we have nearly 1000 sols to add to it now.
To remedy this situation I have collected a set of maps following the whole path from Eagle crater to the exit from Endeavour, sols 1 to 4640. Well, not quite the exit, but close to it. These are maps from my Mars Atlas (up to sol 3700) and from new work since then, including maps released here. I have assembled them in an ebook which is now available from the Kobo store. Just go to www.kobo.com and search for my name or the Title 'Atlas of Opportunity' and you will find it.

I got mine today.
Thank you for this great resource for finding my way around the barren wasteland of Mars.
