My version of the updated map. The recent path has been updated from JPL mapping. EDIT: except I forgot the small move on sol 2702. I replaced the earlier image with a corrected one.

Update to sol 2734. I too forgot the 2702 sol, labelling it 2700 instead! Thanks for bringing it up Phil.
Curiosity drove about 31m on sol 2734, confidentely descending from the Greenheugh pediment and moving to a location near sol 2658.
Just another few meters and it will pass the 22km mark!

Thanks! Very useful as usual. I will be back on the job in a few days.

OK - just catching up on some Moon stuff in preparation for next year, which will be very busy.

Here is a map update to sol 2734. I shifted big blocks of names onto other maps of individual sites and added an inset map to untangle the southbound and northbound parts of the route. It's tricky trying to map something as it happens because you don't know what the map layout should look like when you start.

A very rough update to sol 2744. I think the location should be fairly good, but the path needs work so a more fully edited version will follow when I know more and have a bit of time.

I was waiting for those names ... Curiosity has tottaled over 22km (the marker's location is a best guess) and looks like it is getting ready to take a closer view of Tower Butte.
Update to sol 2742.

Here's a map or sol 2745. I forgot the distance marker, I will add it next time.

Hi Phil - There's another name I feel bound to query. I'm not aware of any place in Scotland named Crossbill though there are several Crosshills. My daughter happens to live very close to one of them. Thanks as always for the maps.

I always welcome corrections and queries. The name I give comes from the Status Reports, but they are not always correct. I will check later when the Sci Ops group reports are in the Analysts' Notebook. And they are also not always correct! I'm going to make your change now on my map and ask questions later.

One other change I make is to represent names as placenames, not file names (omitting underscores, for instance).

Phil

Map update to sol 2747, the new drill site. We will be here for a few weeks. I put a marker in for 22 km but I think I need to move it slightly.

Here is an update to the collection of notional routes / planed traverses.

I have added a new version (the 9th!) of the Mount Sharp Ascension Route. The route is shown in Figure 1 of the paper, submitted to the 51st LPSC, "2426 - Mass Movements and Debris Deposits in the Grand Canyon and Gediz Vallis,Gale Crater, Mars".

I am indebted to UMSF member Paul Hammond (PaulH51) for not only calling my attention to the paper but also for sketching the route and very generously sharing it with me. With his permission, I have made a few changes so any errors you may find are my responsibility only. We both suspect that, in some places, alternative traverses are shown. However, we have chosen to interpret the route as if all paths will be followed, which leads to some segments being passed by two or three times.

As with previous paths, this is a notional path, and Curiosity will follow it only approximately, just compare the actual route with them. At 11.2 km in length, the route passes many interesting places and Curiosity might need a few years to investigate them all! Looking forward to it and enjoying the scenery.
