Description:

This overhead view maps the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit's approximate location in relation to nearby craters and hills. By combining images from both the camera on Mars Global Surveyor and the descent image motion estimation system camera located on the bottom of the rover's lander, scientists and engineers can tell how far away the hills are from the rover. This information would be more difficult to obtain from the panoramic images. The hills and hill ranges are marked by yellow lines, and the rover is located where the yellow lines intersect. Black arrows locate the east hill complex, a potential rover destination.
