This map shows the route driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity through the 1795 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (August 24, 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 1794 to Sol 1795, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 84.02 feet (25.61 meters), bringing the rover's total odometry for the mission to 10.71 miles (17.24 kilometers).
