Only a few images down from sol 1514, but early indications suggest we are between 2 patches of dark sand, right about here...

Sol 1516 - I think this location is good. It's about 25 m south of the last one.

A further update - this includes path corrections from the JPL maps and names of features.

Is that the 'target mesa' at the bottom of your extended base map?

Yes, it is.

Quick update to sol 1521.

Update to sol 1519 plus provisional to sol 1521. Curiosity is perhaps 10m from "planting" the 15 km flag!

Here is an update to sol 1526, a short drive to the drill location.

Update to 1526. Curiosity backtracked and went around a small rise, passing the 15 km point during the drive.
As JPL location maps report 14.99 km for sol 1521 and 15.01 km for sol 1526, I placed the flag at the drive's middle point.

A preliminary map (scale and more names to follow) for recent activities. The route of the most recent drive is not clear to me yet.

This is a very quick update to sol 1571. I will do a proper update when back in my office next week.

Happy 2017!

The file below uses the data from PDS Release 13 including the path for sols 0 to 1433 and Analyst's Notebook links up to sol 1417.
The "route wiggle" (sharp angle) for sol 1373, which first appeared on JPL's Location Map for sol 1383, does not exist in the PDS data.
I have also included a link to Phil's map of activities around Precipice and the provisional path for sol 1571.

Paul's half panorama gave me a good location for sol 1574, so here is an update in my gridded map format. Normal route mapping will hopefully resume tomorrow.

Map update to sol 1576. Looking ahead, that nice little hill is getting closer.

A good drive on sol 1577 brings us to a big slab of outcrop.

(EDIT - just noticed a silly typo on that map, will fix it for the next one)
