Curiosity's Traverse Map Through Sol 1221

This map shows the route driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity through the 1221 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (January, 13, 2016).

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 1216 to Sol 1221, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 16.51 feet (5.03 meters).

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