As it turned out the last map didn't need much revising - just a tiny adjustment, added in this one (previous one not edited). As for sol 50 - must be pretty close to here.

EDIT: sol 50 location replaced with a better match to images after making a hasty panorama - drive was the longest to date.

Nothing on sol 51 yet, but as we have some new feature names I will put this up - with 100 m grid for scale.

update for sol 52, a fairly well constrained position.

Updated map for sol 54. I'm hoping to get an outcrop name soon.

(PS what you're seeing here is work in progress for Vol. 2 of my Mars atlas. I'm keeping MSL and recent Opportunity up to date while filling in the earlier things.)

Sol 55 update. The path between sol 54 and sol 55 is partly conjectural at this stage, but later navcams may help refine it.

An estimation of the total distance made by the rover ?

if you compare my current map with the version with a grid that I post occasionally, you will see we are just short of 400 m east of the landing site and about 40 m south of it. I have not added up the odometry for a total distance but it's probably in the JPL releases.

Sol 56, small update. We will probably be here for a while now.

A corrected copy of the map - I was off in my position for the Bathurst Inlet stop.

I was hoping to find a hypsographic map of the landing site but could not find any. So I made one using a HiRISE DEM and ArcGIS.

The orange tones denote higher elevations, yellow is intermediate elevations, and blue marks lower elevations.

I could only find a KML on this thread up to Sol 42; if someone directs me to a newer KML, I can update this.

Enjoy, Michael

That's lovely. Anything further you make along these lines showing more of Gale Crater and MSL's expected exploration paths will be loudly appreciated, by me at least, and I suspect by others as well.

Thanks for the great map. I was just noticing the steep dropoffs in the North Central and the Northeast portions of the map. Those drops are 10 meters or more in a fairly short distance. I'm thinking those slopes must be over 20 degrees. Glad we didn't land on those slopes.

At today's press conference, one of the engineers said that total odometry was about 80 meters more than the "as the crow flies" distance, or about 480 meters total odometry.
