VW, Thanks for that KML. Nothing I've seen better provides all the familiar images in their appropriate contexts. Very helpful to see just where everything is.

Still testing... now with sol 24.

Hi Tesh - it's been a long time since I have been able to visit here - and so glad to see that you're keeping up a good route-map! As usual.

I'll be looking forward to your latest update on where this new rover is. Thanks much!

I'm waaaay behind on the new interface, so hope my first post in years 'makes it'... ohmy.gif

Here's my attempt at locating MSL on sol 38.

I'll take a stab at Sol 41 based on the latest Navcams:

Hopefully, I got it right... unsure.gif

Route map update...

I am fairly happy with all locations except the last one, which is very preliminary - originally I had it further south but I like Markril's estimate. All features of the map may be updated retroactively from time to time.

EDIT:

Looks like the last drive should be a bit shorter, and the one before a bit longer... I will be adding a scaled grid to this later.

Thanks guys for the mapping effort. As I said in the other thread, the limited amount of available full resolution navcams all around the rover must make mapping challenging.

Route map update...


I put that track into Google Earth--here's the overall view of the track as seen from a point about 25 meters above the landing spot:

Attached Image


Even from that vantage, Glenelg is slightly below the horizon. The ground image is the slope map. The track appears to go through some rougher terrain, so maybe it went around that a bit? Green is 12.5-25 slope (no traverse on sand, some slip on bedrock).


Here's the ground-level view from the terminal point:

Attached Image


The pushpin for Glenelg is just peeking over the rise, so maybe it's not quite visible yet? GE elevation is based on MOLA and the "ground level" observation point in this case is from a height of 1.75 meters.

Beeline range to Glenelg is about 190 meters, 170 meters to the landing site.

Revised route map for sol 41 - I had to revise the sol 40 point, which was difficult to match with HiRISE.
