It sure is., Just sometimes it is nice to correlate the map to a ground image.

Another update - looks like I will need a new base map soon.

A quick update to sol 4200 while I work on a new base map.

Tim Parker's map at the MER website has allowed me to correct an error in the Opportunity route map (full Navcam pans would really help with location, but images are precious right now). I am trying to put together a detailed map of the current area as well. A couple of feature names are floating while I try to place them better.

Here's a close-up route map for Opportunity's recent activities. The target locations are not precise. I hope we will get an update from Larry Crumpler in due course to give me more details.

First drive of the new year! Not very far, but here's a map. (EDIT - very quickly replaced with a version with a few more names)

Catching up with Opportunity after a bit of a gap. Sol 4320 - moving to a different location on the slope, or perhaps a different approach to the rocks they couldn't reach last time. Not sure yet!

PS not sure that I have 'Northwest Ridge' in the right place, it might be the far side of the valley.

Another drive, another map - just as LPSC concludes.

Yikes, it's hard to keep up. Let's hope Curiosity stays put for a week so I can catch up here. Yeah, just kidding (sort of). I have things to add to this when I can get to it, some names and white squares to indicate the main science sites (where IDD is used). The route into the valley is shown subdued and cleared of labels (compare with earlier maps) for clarity.

This smaller scale (larger area) map shows our recent drives in a wider context. We are still in Marathon Valley, but you can see here that it has two halves, separated by Knudsen Ridge. And Opportunity is so far up the slope now that it can now see down into the southern half of the valley for the first time.

Update to sol 4341. The recent locations are only approximate.
