This map shows the route driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity through the 1417 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (August, 01, 2016).

Numbering of the dots along the line indicate the sol number of each drive. North is up. From Sol 1414 to Sol 1417, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 16.85 feet (5.14 meters). Since touching down in Bradbury Landing in August 2012, Curiosity has driven 8.43 miles (13.57 kilometers).
