A new traverse map through Sol 1785 has been issued showing the robot’s drive and current location.

Numbering of the dots along the line indicate the sol number of each drive. North is up. The scale bar is 1 kilometer (~0.62 mile).

From Sol 1782 to Sol 1785, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 99.05 feet (30.19 meters), bringing the rover’s total odometry for the mission to 10.62 miles (17.09 kilometers).

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