I have been posting these maps since landing (and plan to continue), but if you want a summary of the rover's travels and you don't want to slog through over 1100 posts, I have now collected maps of the whole traverse up to about sol 1948 (nominally 1950, but I finished a bit early).

They can be obtained here:

http://www.blurb.ca/b/8519959-atlas-of-curiosity

as a printed 'magazine' or as a PDF file. There is an e-book option but I'm not sure how effective that is and for now I'm not sure I would recommend it.

I did this for Opportunity before, just as an epub file, but that will soon follow in the new print plus PDF format at Blurb.ca, updated to sol 5000.

Sol 1962, a drive to a bright outcrop sitting in a small depression. The route is loosely based on visible tracks. As always I will correct it based on JPL mapping as it becomes available. This overview shows that we are getting back to the planned drive path after an excursion into the clay unit.

It seems Curiosity might stay at sol's 1963 location for a while,to attempt drilling, so here is an update with the latest move.
