Sol 2311, quick map which may need editing later - it has a couple of feature names which I can't place properly yet, among other things.

We moved north about 30 m on sol 2313, closer to the base of the ridge. I need to adjust the base image - when you don't know where you are going it's hard to design the map.

Update to sol 2313. Really smooth terrain.

The paper "Exploring the Clay-Bearing Unit with the Curiosity Rover", linked to from Emily's Post on another thread - thanks Emily! - shows an update to the notional route depicted in the press release "Mid-2017 Map of NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover Mission" mentioned in my Post.
So here is an update the route through the clay-bearing unit. Instead of changing the older route I added a new route (marked 2019-Feb) that only differs from the previous one on that section shown in the above mentioned paper.
As usual, the KMZ file contains all the previously mapped routes, so you can discard the older KMZ.

Thanks!

Here is an update to sol 2316, moving to a nice outcrop closer to the foot of the scarp.

Hi Phil,
Thank you for your timely posts. This new route seemed sufficiently different to warrant an update.
I always have to caution myself that although these afford us a glimpse of the future they are just planned routes: already the path in sol 2316 is deviating from it!
The ground truth input must have a big weight smile.gif
