Here you go, imipak. It's all yours. Thank you, Eduardo, for graciously allowing me to lift information from your superb route maps and drop that onto the anaglyph I made from HiRise imagery provided by NASA/JPL/UA people. I expanded the area of this map so it would display the Von Braun and Goddard goals in context, and I added an arrow pointing to the southern exit ramp that fredk recently reminded us of.

I know this must be asking for far too much, but would it be possible to "drape" the overlay information onto the height map, so the route and all the names lie "on the ground"? - I think I've seen that with other maps, and it is stunning.

Oersted: If I am understanding your request correctly, you are asking for a map in which the route lines and labels are also anaglyphs, so everything lies at the correct depth on the map. That would essentially require me to redraw Eduardo's route lines and labels to match the locations on the second HiRise image comprising the anaglyph. I absolutely agree with you that that would make a superior map where the lines and labels are not sometimes floating above or below the perceived surface. I'm afraid however, that I do not have the time to do that. Sorry. sad.gif

Oh, no way I would want anybody to do that manually. I was just wondering out aloud, whether it would be possible automatically to transfer the height info of the relief map to the lines and names. Probably not...

Magnificent, CR, thanks (and to Eduardo for the mapping of course!) There'll be another "show and tell" session for my lucky colleagues in the office next week. FWIW, personally I like the look of the labels as a floating upper layer.

The latest moves were so small that it doesn't deserve an update of the route map, however I thought it was time to double-check the "plots" on the map since Spirit left the winter haven, comparing the navcam mosaics in polar projection with the HiRISE picture. The result is that those moves were overestimated and Spirit's current position is a few meters to the left of where it was previously pointed.

Here's another map update, corresponding to sol 1829, slightly adjusted respect to the one posted here. When registering the navcam mosaic in polar projection to the map background I found that the initial estimate was off by around 20%.

I think it's time to post the whole map again and make it a little bigger extending it to cover our planned destination: Von Braun and Goddard.
The route points are updated to the last drive, which happened during sol 1854.

Cripes, looking at the new map (thanks, Tesh) it's a long way! unsure.gif

Good luck Spirit!
