The 2nd Planetary Data Workshop

The wealth of data now available for planetary research has created the need for new tools and capabilities for storing, delivering, and working with the data using cutting-edge methods. The goals of this workshop are to bring together planetary scientists, data providers from current and recent space exploration missions, data archivists, and software and technology experts to exchange ideas on current capabilities and needs for improved and new tools that can be used to address current needs in planetary research and data analysis. Encouraged topics include the availability of planetary data, including information on how the data are found, downloaded, processed, and used for cartography and scientific analysis; trends in data storage and rapid access; analysis and visualization tools using current and new algorithms and methods; hands-on training and how-to guides for acquiring, processing, and working with a variety of digital planetary data; and publicly available derived data products and services, including Geographic Information Systems, featuring data and tools customized for planetary data analysis.
