This map is periodically updated by the mission team as Curiosity drives on its way to the base of Mount Sharp.
Curiosity Rover's Location for Sol 1998
This map shows the route driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity through the 1998 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (March 21, 2018).
Numbering of the dots along the line indicate the sol number of each drive. North is up. From Sol 1996 to Sol 1998, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 34.79 feet (10.60 meters). Since touching down in Bradbury Landing in August 2012, Curiosity has driven 11.47 miles (18.45 kilometers).
The base image from the map is from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment Camera (HiRISE) in NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
