Sorry, but I don't see the coincidence.

And no, I'm just a "space enthusiast", no "insider".


You're right, they are a little different.
I didn't compare them closely...

Tesheiner, I wonder if it might be useful for some (those not actively using GE?) to provide a larger-scale closeup map showing our route as we circumnavigate Concepcion?

Maybe I'll post a close-up after this stop is over. I made them for some of our other stops.

Map update after sol 2147. The rover's position change is barely visible on the 1m/pix map so here's a snapshot taken from the GE version.

For those of you who want to follow Eduardo's latest maps in GE since Oppy wandered off the included HiRISE base map, I've mirrored the HiRISE image map update here (256 MB Zip file; download, unzip, and then open "MER-B map extension version 2.0.kml" within Google Mars).

Great, Emily!
Perhaps I should include a link to it on the route map...

Folks...

I am in GOOGLE MARS doing the a slow roll along Tesheiner's route mapping for Oppy and listening to "Winds of Mars" CD.
Highly recommend the experience
WOW... what a relaxer ........

Hi all!

I've been trying to find a streamlined way of posting my Opportunity location maps for public access for some time now, and hopefully that's going to start happening soon (today?). In the meantime, here are my latest (remember that Oppy hasn't moved in a few sols). First is the map at the HiRISE mosaic resolution of 25cm/pixel. Second is a 5cm/pixel projection of the Navcam panoramas onto the HiRISE image, around Concepcion.

KML files for Google Mars on the MER website maybe? That would be great! smile.gif

I presume that's a projection of the 3D meshes generated from both L&R images. I would love to put my hands on such tools...

I'm hoping to do that at some point soon, but need to get the paper writ first that includes contributions from JPLers to the planning software used to make the maps.

Forgot to comment on this. Yes, that is from the project's planning software. But I believe there is commercial software out there to do something similar, provided the camera models can be generated. For example, I use Point Grey Research firewire cameras for planetary imaging (I'm an amateur astronomer), and Pt Grey has stereo camera systems and software to build 3-D files from stereo pairs.

There must be others, but I haven't had any opportunities (sorry for the pun) to explore these myself.
