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 2156
This map shows the route driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity through the 2156 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (August 30, 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 2132 to Sol 2156, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 127.30 feet (38.80 meters), bringing the rover's total odometry for the mission to 12.20 miles (19.64 kilometers).
The base image from the map is from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment Camera (HiRISE) in NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
