Superb quality like ones of Oppy's map. Very good detail. The last transverse soles zone must have another picture but magnified in order to see the round zigzag movements. blink.gif

Thanks, Phil. As with the Oppy map, it's spectacular.

Great map once again. Perhaps you should add the elevation of Husband Hill at the true summit.

I also like the nod to Ultreya. Seeing it on a map of this nature got me thinking about the naming of features when mapping. Almost everywhere on our home planet has multiple names that mean different things to different people. Those names tell a story not just about the landscape, but also of the people who discovered, travelled, mapped, inhabited or just dreamed about that place. To leave Ultreya off a map of the Columbia hills is to erase, in some way, the passion of those following the missions. It is a nod to the fact that planetary exploration by the MERs is not done in isolation but also with a bunch of enthusiasts eagerly following the trials and tribulations of this new phase of Martian exploration.

To me, after following for 800 sols, Mars has now become a place, somewhere else to be. A small part of my consciousness and my dreams are now anchored to something tangible on the surface of another world.

So here's to Ultreya/El Dorado and Albert/Erebus, the expansion of the noosphere and maps that tell a story of people and not just place.

In my moon work I have tried to record all the informal names given to lunar features - at landing sites, on the Apollo 10/11 descent paths, and the Apollo 8 "farside communication designators". I made a decision here to preserve the name Ultreya. But I regret to say, I was never very impressed with 'Albert' - also it didn't really enter public use to the extent Ultreya did. Pitcher's Mound... not so sure. I think the MER team might have dropped the ball on that one. Anyway, somebody else can always make maps with other names.

That's a very real feeling. I first "got it" having read Mapping Mars, the Oliver Morton book, a couple of years ago.

For those who've followed the MERs over thirteen kilometres, I suspect few could see Mars as just a planet anymore: it's a real place we've grown to know, one we can imagine walking over, touching rocks, feeling the resistance of the dunes, the thin gusts of passing dust devils. While the rovers continue to rove (and indeed long after they sieze up and take their final pictures) who of us won't be able to glance at a MER pancam picture and not tell which rover took it, or roughly whereabouts in their travels it was taken?

Many thanks, Phil, for your maps and helping to emphasize that amazing sense of place.

Exactly my feelings too - and an excellent book. I've just finished it and am working on a review that I'll post in a few days.

Another vote for the Morton book. It is exceptionally readable.
