Very nice! Here it is in a circular form.

Phil

(PS I really like those RMI mosaics of the Gale rim)

Here's a couple of ChemCam RMI mosaics of the Peace Vallis area with a MastCam M-34 context shot. The ChemCam mosaics are from Sols 1252 and 1263 data, the context image is from Sol 1163 (tt's been a while since MastCam has made a mosaic of the crater rim!) I don't think this is entirely complete, since there are a couple of RMI mosaics from Sol 1257 that appear to be somewhere in the Peace Vallis fan. However, the MastCam image is heavily artifacted, which isn't helping...

I did manual stitching and made heavy use of the dodge and burn tools to assemble the RMI mosaics. They're really spectacular, but working with them is a lot like massaging vidicon images from the early Space Age!

Fantastic work there Justin...maybe we can petition to get the Rover to image the entire crater wall this way. /half joking

Very nice work Sean

Curiosity Mission Update from Ryan Anderson: Sols 1266-1268: Taking Stock of Stockdale:
QUOTE
Today’s plan has a nice mix of science and driving. The rover will start off on Sol 1266 with ChemCam observations of the targets “Ugab”, “Rooibank” and “Stockdale”. We will zap the Rooibank target using two different laser energies to see if that helps us figure out the amount of hydrogen in the target. Afterwards, Mastcam has some documentation images of the ChemCam targets, and then we will do some contact science: MAHLI will take some images of “Waterburg”, then the DRT will brush the dust off of “Stockdale” and MAHLI will take some pictures of that target too. After the DRT, Mastcam will observe the Stockdale target with all of its science filters, and APXS will then do an overnight observation on the brushed location.

On Sol 1267, Mastcam has a big mosaic of the edge of the Naukluft plateau, which will give us a nice view of the geology there and help us decide what to do as we get closer. After that, the rover will continue driving toward the plateau and do the usual post-drive imaging, plus some additional Mastcam off to the right hand side of the rover.

On Sol 1268, we have a bunch of untargeted observations. ChemCam has a passive sky observation, and Mastcam will observe its calibration targets so the filter observations of Stockdale can be calibrated. Mastcam also has tau observations at two different times. To wrap up the plan, Navcam will do its usual atmospheric monitoring observations.

Here is my take on RMI pictures of sol 1252 & 1263. I used pansharpening technic to merge them with MC34 pictures taken on sol 1163 (thanks Justin for pointing out these MC34 pics !).
I checked the location of sol 1257 RMI pictures with Midnight Planets App: they are close to top RMI mosaic but do not intersect with it.

Thanks Sean. Now I can pinpoint the location, I think, and add the path till sol 1264.

@Justin: really, really great work. And in color!

Here is Sean's panorama in a circular form. It let me move my rover location a bit further west than I showed it on the last map.

Happy to assist Mr Phil... I'm saving up for your books!

Here is the latest from Sol 1264 looking northwest...

... and Hey Presto! A circular version. There are a few offsets, mostly visible in the plains to the north, which are exacerbated by my projection, but this gives a very good fix on our current location.
