Road map

Meanwhile, A new map shows the route driven by NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity through the 2654 Martian day, or sol, of the rover’s mission on Mars (January 24, 2020).

Numbering of the dots along the line indicate the sol number of each drive. North is up.

From Sol 2645 to Sol 2654, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 128.88 feet (39.28 meters).

Since touching down in Bradbury Landing in August 2012, Curiosity has driven 13.54 miles (21.79 kilometers).

The base image from the map is from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment Camera (HiRISE) in NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
