I'm working on Spirit at the moment. I will post a few examples of things as I go.

Right now the important job is updating the contemporary route map by locating the stops on HiRISE images. The existing maps at JPL, for the early part of the mission, were plotted on MOC images with inferior resolution and lighting, so I find many locations were about 15 or 20 m out. So at every site I am making circular panoramas (examples later) for comparison with HiRISE. Here's a first example, a map of the route during the Primary Mission. I have added a few extra placenames from the MER Analyst's Notebook at PDS.

It looks like it's on that line you've drawn at about half past five. If that's correct there's not much doubt about the identification. The horizon is one smaller crater-width further away. But how far is that? How does the distance compare with the Miyamoto rim peaks ('Mule Ears') seen by Opportunity?

Find the discussion - now that's a challenge. I'll have a go.
