Opportunity route map
The base image for this map is a mosaic of Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Context Camera images that has been colorized with Mars Express HRSC images. During its 14.5 years on the Martian surface, Opportunity traveled 45.16 km from its landing site in Eagle Crater. The site of its last communication with Earth (and presumably its final resting place) at Perseverance Valley lies almost exactly 25 km as the crow flies from its starting point.

The image is also available in PNG format., and here is a PNG format version with a scale bar.
