Camera is selectable between the two navigation cameras (NAVCAM LEFT, NAVCAM RIGHT), two color cameras on the mast (MASTCAM LEFT and MASTCAM RIGHT) and CHEMCAM. The NAVCAMs have a 45.3° field of view, MASTCAM LEFT 20.3° MASTCAM RIGHT 7.0° and CHEMCAM 1.1°.

Only full frame (or nearly full frame) images are displayed. NASA/NAIF data that is used to get camera pointing and rover location is released periodically, usually twice a day, so there may be a delay of some hours between when a raw image is released by NASA and when it is displayed here.

Images are grouped by station number (each time the rover drives it establishes a new station). Placenames and feature names are provided in the drop-down menu when available.

The images are stacked on top of each other but will come to the front with a mouseover. Clicking on a image will bring up a new tab with a map of the rover postion and a larger view of the raw image. The raw image can be downloaded with a right click.

At some busy locations there may be some images that are inaccessible because they are completely covered. Hitting refresh will stack the images in a new random order which may bring some others into view.
