Thank you.

I'm still puzzled that the 'official' map appears to be neglected. Raw images are still posted on most days, so they are still attending to the public-facing part of the project.

"I'm still puzzled that the 'official' map appears to be neglected...."

That map which was posted above is not an official map!  It's just some rover fan fuddle-duddling around on the internet.

The official maps are here and they are up to date most of the time.
