The helicopter can use these opportunities to perform aerial observations of rover science targets, potential rover routes, and inaccessible features while also capturing stereo images for digital elevation maps.
Trekking the surface of Jezero Crater will be challenging. As evidence on Sol 74 raw images, we can see how rough the terrain is and the how the Perseverance Rover team manages the routes and the instructions for the rover will be arranged in order for it to execute efficiently.

Pictures are worth thousand words. So, I’m just sharing all photos as captured by NASA Mars Perseverance Rover currently on the Red planet. Photo, crawled using NASA API. Really helpful delivered to my inbox. With additional steps, reflected the structured table into this post. Here’s how you can go back to the technical on how we crawl these raw images as Percy streams it to NASA lend us with the API
