Curiosity's Traverse Map Through Sol 1962

This map shows the route driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity through the 1962 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (February 12, 2018).

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 1950 to Sol 1962, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 96.32 feet (29.36 meters), bringing the rover's total odometry for the mission to 11.31 miles (18.20 kilometers).

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