You may be right!

A drive uphill on sol 4874, back to a prominent groove which was imaged a few sols ago. Although it's close to my 45 km marker, you should be aware that the marker is only approximately located.

I am ignoring the small move on sol 4883, which was uphill about 40 cm and down about the same amount resulting in no net change to speak of. On sol 4885 we moved about 3 m downslope again. This map has a few minor corrections to the path.

Another 3 m or so downslope on sol 4890. EDIT - no, I plotted the vector backwards, they went back uphill. Map correction will follow very shortly. EDIT - now corrected!

PS thanks Fredk for pointing out my mistake.

Here is the final result of that mapping I was illustrating in the other thread. The surface images (after a few additions) were roughly fitted to HiRISE features... NOT with the benefit of a detailed DTM, just warping to match features reasonably well. Now the detailed movements can be plotted more reliably. LOcations here are fixed by locating rover wheels in the hazcam views.

A drive on sol 4907 to another part of the rocky outcrop.
