Yes, Bill, that's a start. Probably JPL hasn't got much more than this, since they are in the midst of a long-baseline 3D shoot of the hill now. If Korolev gets us into the "Safe Zone" then things are looking good, I would say. The next question is: where is the bottom of the safe zone?...
I imagine the long baseline 3D shoot will generate a good enough Digital Elevation Model to compute slope and insolation parameters at the visible face of McCool Hill. Probably the planners have something like that in mind, which will be very useful assuming the wheel problems work out.
If such a DEM were made generally available, I'm sure interested parties (Helvick, are you interested? unsure.gif ) could map the expected power input at various points on the hill at various times of year and get not just the safe zone, but also maps of surplus power for mobility and research.

I inquired about getting the DEM of the MOC stereo pairs to do some nice flyarounds etc, but didn't get a response sadly.

That has always been the plan. smile.gif

And I did another version (half-size), including Doug's slope colorization annotated by sattrackpro (original posts here and here).

Tesh - it looks like a straight (approx.) 6 day drive (short ones) would get us to Doug's green zone...

This is no 'route map' - but it is a map, such as it is... the Google Mars Map.

It doesn't work too well, doesn't go back to prior images well, and fails other desired features too - but, it is better than nothing, and better than others in some ways.

That makes for aprox. 3m NE since my last update (sol 782). sad.gif

Slow days could now be a substantial understatement. I would be interested to see a highly detailed Spirit Route Map for the last two weeks. I think it would be pretty worrying. It's not that we have so far to go, it's that our rate of progress is frighteningly slow. I guess it does show how the sand can sneak up on you. Maybe MSL should have deployable sandshoes. sad.gif

No, this isn't a "highly detailed" route map but just the usual one. Actually I haven't updated it since sol 787 simply because Spirit has been moving around the same point (for the resolution of this map). Sol 799 drive can be clearly seen on hazcam and navcam pics, but here on the map it's difficult to isolate from 782 and 787.
Anyway, I thought it was just time to update it.

Thanks, Tesh. Of course as soon as I express worry about Spirit's immobility, the next pictures show it successfully backed out of the quagmire, Deo gratias. I should do it sooner. Now we will see the new travel direction and strategy. Hopefully time remains for a successful escape.

Sure, like you suggested, they put it in reverse and gunned it. wink.gif

This is a correction to the sol 799 route map posted three entries above.
The current site isn't between sols 782 and 787 positions but between 781 and 782.

Spirit route map. greatly reduced. I don't have good control for the last few positions yet. Because this is a composite of separate maps there are places where the join is bad. I'll fix it later. The relief distortions are worse here than for Opportunity. Don't take it as gospel.
