I updated my small map ... not sure why I put 1037 where I did but this should be better. The last position is still not certain.

There are quite a few big rocks on Clark Hill, one of those is probably what you see.

Not as big as these monsters though! (On Chawla Hill I think, although I'm a little lost. unsure.gif )

Thanks James...I can tell by the long shadow that it must be the one above and left of center. When I get the proper software and a couple more gigabytes of memory I'll draw out the angles from the HiRISE image, route map, and the pancam images and confirm it.

EDIT Here's a very rough guess not based on any measurements....

If Occam had heard my theory, things would be very different now.

Hi folks.
Here in Spain we are in the middle of a some holidays so I took some spare time to make a new version of route map using the HiRISE image as background but enlarged to a scale about 10cm/pixel. blink.gif
Given the limited mobility and the mid-term plans are constrained to Home Plate, I thought that a map covering just that area and using such a scale would be ok, otherwise it would be either too big or too cluttered. Comments?

Edited: Adjusted last positions.

The idea came when I saw Phil's "mini-route" map (good idea too!). I thought it would be nice to have something inbetween the normal 50cm-1m/pix route map and the mini-map.

BTW, to plot the old route (since sol 7xx) on this new map I made use of 360º polar projections. It was very easy to correlate them with the map; boulters/rocks of 10-30cm size were readily identifiable on the HiRISE image. cool.gif
Same for these last movements. Some of those big vesicular basalts around the winter haven are visible too.

Very good map, Tesheiner. I had started doing this with a MOC background, waiting for the new view - but now I don't need to continue with it! And that's good because I have another little mapping project on the go, between atlases...

Probably both.
Here in Spain, Nov 6th is the Constitution's Day while the 8th is the Imacculated Conception, so it's a nice five days off holiday. biggrin.gif

... and we are only in the middle of it. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

You're in the middle of it HERE in Sintra...I've never seen so many spaniards as this year... blink.gif
They've taken every corner, every bar, every restaurant...It's an invasion! smile.gif

I though your Maths were much better than that my friend! From Nov6th to Dec8th make some 32 days, not 5 days! You're ALWAYS in holiday.
...and you're right Ustrax, France too is as crowded with Spaniards as Martian orbit with orbiters

Where do they come from?! blink.gif
But I love that Ducados smell!... smile.gif
Next week is my time to cross the border and smell some good old Ultreya's Europe... biggrin.gif
