3D route map for Curiosity: Along the dunes to the edge of Murray Buttes, sols 649 and following

A wide view of Curiosity's traverse on a 3D base map. Not every drive sol is shown -- just enough to pick out the route. At full resolution it is 1 meter per pixel. North is about 6.5 degrees to the left of up. The red line on the map is the "safe transit route" announced by JPL around sol 668, designed to preserve rover wheels by crossing benign terrain. More formats: Left stereo | Right stereo | Flicker gif

This is a red-blue anaglyph. Use 3D glasses (red over left eye, blue over right) to see it in 3D.

The base map is this anaglyph HiRISE image.
