Spirit's Surroundings
Date: 7 Apr 2009

A topographic map of Spirit's surroundings at Troy, where the rover became stuck in 2009. Spirit is straddling the edge of a small crater. Sulfate materials are located in the crater (from the middle of the rover and extending to the left). The topographic map was generated from stereo images taken by Spirit's navigation camera when it was approaching the area on 7 April 2009.
