This map shows the route driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity through the 1662 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (April 10, 2017).

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 1659 to Sol 1662, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 79.21 feet (24.14 meters), bringing the rover's total odometry for the mission to 9.93 miles (15.98 kilometers).
