The nearest tracks from the sol 666 drive are 20 meters from Spirit's current position, so the sol 671 position should be about 20 meters to the SSW, near the edge of the dark patch.

I knew that when plotted 671 position; it was a bit inconsistent with that 666 drive. But that's the problem with this incremental method; errors are cumulative and from time to time you must correct the whole thing using another technic.

... errors are cumulative ... and worst when they come from wrong calculations. sad.gif

An updated map correcting sol 670 drive (now estimated to be 14m @ 125º to the right of Home Plate). Sol 671 drive is still estimated to be 7m @ 130º to the right of H.P.

PS: As already said I wasn't expecting new official maps too soon, and never just few hours after my posted route map. blink.gif
Here is an animated GIF comparing both maps. There are clearly differences among both but there are also differences on the vertical scales(see the different positions for the "waypoint"), so at the end both maps represent similar routes.

Ok.
I took the second map (http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/mission/tm-...MERA_A668_2.jpg) on that release and overlayed the first map (http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/mission/tm-...MERA_A668_3.jpg) on top of it, after adjusting the scales.
And the result is this:

Well we know where we’re goin’
But we don’t know where we’ve been
And we know what we’re knowin’
But we can’t say what we’ve seen
And we’re not little children
And we know what we want
And the future is certain
Give us time to work it out

We’re on a road to nowhere
Come on inside
Takin’ that ride to nowhere
We’ll take that ride


Tesheiner, after seeing your comparison, that seemed appropriate biggrin.gif (taken from here).

New Traverse map from JPL

PIA03624: Spirit Traverse Map, Sol 680

http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA03624

Annotated Spirit Traverse Map

http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/figures/PIA03624_fig1.jpg

This image shows the route that NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit has driven inside Gusev Crater from its first Martian day (sol 1) to its 680th sol (Dec. 1, 2005), more than a complete Martian year. The underlying image (previously released as PIA07849) is a mosaic of images from the Mars Orbiter Camera on NASA's Mars Global Surveyor orbiter. The scale bar at lower left is 500 meters (0.31 mile). As of sol 680, Spirit had driven a total of 5,495 meters (3.41 miles).
