Curiosity continues to climb Mt. Sharp. It is now more than 330m (~1100 ft) above Yellowknife Bay, the lowest point in its route (thanks Paolo!). This is only a rough sketch, the elevation profile's alignment with the route is poor, but I hope it conveys the idea.

Wow ! Thanks Nogal : a 330m climb goes definitely above the summit (antenna) of the Eiffel Tower (325 m).

Thanks vikingmars. The height difference in the PDS data set (sols 0 to 1781) is approximately 294m, but Curiosity has continued her climb ever since.
Ah, Paris! When I was young I once climbed the Eiffel Tower till the second floor, the access was free. Many steps, a hard climb, but was rewarded with a magnificent view. Lovely photo, thank you.

I took the elevator up the tower! Back in the Jurassic Period.

Looks like a 12 to 15 m drive east on sol 1905.

I was on my high-school-finalist's trip and my meager budget was about gone... rolleyes.gif

Update to sol 1905.

Update to sol 1910, with a return to the bright outcrop at Lismore. This area needs a super-high-resolution map... coming soon.

Obviously an outcrop of more than passing interest.

Just as things were getting really interesting (Laphroig, Oban, Talisker, etc.) she moves away wink.gif Great to see she decided to have some quality time and came back cool.gif Seriously, I won't probably be posting any updates for a few weeks, so best wishes to everyone for 2018.

Update to sol 1910. Enjoy the Holidays. Fernando

Map update to sol 1912, a short move back to almost the 1903 position, no doubt to knock back a wee dram for the holidays.

This is a preliminary version of a close-up map of our current area. I have a location for sol 1923 but I don't know the path to it yet, so I am not showing it. The base is reprojected panoramas using HiRISE for positional control.

Happy New Year!

Here is another way to look at Curiosity's progress: location by major dates.

And here is the update to sol 1923, including a link to Phil's latest close-up map (to be updated if necessary).

Here's my map for sol 1928 - we already moved out of my closeup area. This location should be fairly good but the route is uncertain at the moment except where I can see tracks.

This time the exact location is not very reliable (though we are on the light-toned outcrop), but the route should be reasonably good, from the tracks.

Hi Phil, one of your splendid maps has made it to a BBC News website story:
