This map shows the route driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity through the 1589 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (January 25, 2017).

Numbering of the dots along the line indicate the sol number of each drive. North is up. From Sol 1587 to Sol 1589, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 94.78 feet (28.89 meters). Since touching down in Bradbury Landing in August 2012, Curiosity has driven 9.53 miles (15.34 kilometers).
