This map shows the route driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity through the 1601 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (February 06, 2017).

Numbering of the dots along the line indicate the sol number of each drive. North is up. From Sol 1598 to Sol 1601, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 65.25 feet (19.89 meters). Since touching down in Bradbury Landing in August 2012, Curiosity has driven 9.60 miles (15.45 kilometers).

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