Spirit Traverse Map
This map illustrates the NASA Mars Exploration Rover Spirit's position at the base of the "Columbia Hills" from sols 183 to 187 (July 9 to 13, 2004). The dotted blue line indicates the rover's planned energy-efficient path to climb the hill and reach the intriguing rock outcrops at the top of "West Spur."
The map was created using data from the camera on NASA's Mars Global Surveyor orbiter.
