This map is periodically updated by the mission team as Curiosity drives on its way to the base of Mount Sharp.
Curiosity's Traverse Map Through Sol 1996
This map shows the route driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity through the 1996 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (March 22, 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 1993 to Sol 1996, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 124.44 feet (37.93 meters), bringing the rover's total odometry for the mission to 11.46 miles (18.44 kilometers).
The base image from the map is from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment Camera (HiRISE) in NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
