This projection of the Mars Exploration Rover provides a true-to-scale overhead view of the rover deck and nearby surrounding terrain. The view here shows outcrop rocks, sand dunes, and other features out to a distance of about 82 feet from the rover. Opportunity examined targets on the outcrop called 'Rimrock' in front of the rover, testing the mobility and operation of Opportunity's robotic arm in 2005.
