Following Curiosity with HiRISE

The blog run by Emily Lakdawalla at the Planetary Society’s site has a fascinating and useful post about HiRISE imaging of the area traversed by Mars rover Curiosity on its trek to Mt. Sharp. After explaining how HiRISE works, she presents two mosaics she assembled. One shows the footprints of digital terrain models based on HiRISE stereo images, the other shows mosaics of HiRISE color images. These cover the rover’s path to date and a possible future traverse to Mt. Sharp. The post also gives tables with links describing the DTM and color frames.
