This map shows the route driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity through the 1608 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (February 13, 2017).

Numbering of the dots along the line indicate the sol number of each drive. North is up. From Sol 1605 to Sol 1608, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 21.41 feet (6.53 meters). Since touching down in Bradbury Landing in August 2012, Curiosity has driven 9.65 miles (15.53 kilometers).

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