thx Emily! It's like living a dream to fly around G.Mars smile.gif

Hi all!

I've been trying to find a streamlined way of posting my Opportunity location maps for public access for some time now, and hopefully that's going to start happening soon (today?). In the meantime, here are my latest (remember that Oppy hasn't moved in a few sols). First is the map at the HiRISE mosaic resolution of 25cm/pixel. Second is a 5cm/pixel projection of the Navcam panoramas onto the HiRISE image, around Concepcion.

KML files for Google Mars on the MER website maybe? That would be great! smile.gif

I presume that's a projection of the 3D meshes generated from both L&R images. I would love to put my hands on such tools...

I'm hoping to do that at some point soon, but need to get the paper writ first that includes contributions from JPLers to the planning software used to make the maps.

Forgot to comment on this. Yes, that is from the project's planning software. But I believe there is commercial software out there to do something similar, provided the camera models can be generated. For example, I use Point Grey Research firewire cameras for planetary imaging (I'm an amateur astronomer), and Pt Grey has stereo camera systems and software to build 3-D files from stereo pairs.

There must be others, but I haven't had any opportunities (sorry for the pun) to explore these myself.

Looks like we're leaving already!? Or are they stopping to examine the eject 'tail'?

I think just going around all the rocks in this ray. A little dangerous to cross rock piles.

Guys - a polite reminder -this thread is for maps, or discussion of making/tweaking/interpreting the maps. There are routine threads for discussion of actual rover ops.

I've included Santa Maria (Mini-Endurance) too. Note that the label is really displaced wrt the default low-res map; you must load SFJCody's maps to see if properly.

Congratulations Tesheiner. Emily Lakdawalla has a link to one of your route maps for Opportunity in an article in the Planetary Society Blog.

Thanks Dig. smile.gif
I read the article before your post but didn't realized the link was pointing here. In any case, I suppose that map was not the one used by SS on the conference but he would have used one from the project itself. That would be too much for the heart! laugh.gif
