Don't forget to thank SFJCody -- he did the lion's share of the work getting earlier map updates done.

There's a lovely new color view of the northwest rim of Endeavour: http://www.uahirise.org/ESP_021892_1775

This makes me wonder what parts of Opportunity's path have been covered in color. It's a question I know I could answer myself if I had the time, but I don't. If I were going to answer it, I'd figure out which images crossed Opportunity's path and then identify the regions lacking color coverage.....

Thanks for posting that beautifully colored view...
I notice the related context swath was out-with Oppy's current travails...
Is HiRISE planned to continue on Oppy's trek, by any routine ?
Happy HiWISHES

Tweaked the new HiRISE image of Cape York to make it look a little less garish, hopefully a little more natural, and then, just for fun - so not claiming mega-accuracy - dropped some 'virtual Oppys' onto it at various places, to show the scale of the features at Cape York...

This might be useful for our lower-tech members who can't access HiRISE images via the IAS Viewer, or the Google Mars images.

Oh wow!

Once we get on that color patch, that'd be as good a place as any to proclaim official 'arrival', right? For something this big, there's few well-defined borders....

Lovely view and I like those possible routes, Stu. Might the team forego those excursions in pursuit of the clays at Tribulation?

Lately I've been working on HiRISE GE extension of Endeavour rim, the area south of Cape York. As a result I uploaded this kmz example. The procedure was as follows:

1. cropped PSP_010341_1775_RED using JP2_PDS/PDS_JP2 ("Area" option)
2. converted JP2 to png using "convert" (ImageMagick)
3. loaded png to GE, tuned North, South etc. coordinates and finally saved as kmz

Surely this method is not optimal. As a consequence I have one big image being loaded so GE hangs a little bit while loading. But later it works ok smile.gif At the beginning I wanted to use MapTiler (just as it was done in previous posts) but it produced strange results for this big png file. My tests with smaller example files looked more optimistic with that program.

Here are some screenshots:

I decided to upload kmz maybe sbd would like to use it...

That sounds great!
But, as you said, it's not optimal given the file size; actually, my laptop almost freeze during 1-2 minutes and finally finishes with a big "X" (can't display) instead of the real picture. I'll suggest you to keep working with MapTiler but splitting the big source file into smaller (e.g. 8000x8000) pieces first.

Could you detail it a little bit?

That's due to small differences in the lat/long coordinates you are using (in relation to the map I made). I can provide you with some data that should solve it, if you want.
