P047:
Toward a Planetary Spatial Data Infrastructure





Session ID#: 26632

Session Description:
Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs) support data analysis and research using in situ and remotely sensed spatial data. SDIs have been developed for a wide range of topics using a myriad of technologies. SDIs support (1) efficient data discovery, (2) improved data integration and usage and (3) collaborative research through integrated research environments.

Within the planetary science community, SDIs or a Planetary Spatial Data Infrastructure (PSDI) are largely absent. The spatial data collection, storage, and utilization costs for extraterrestrial data are high due to both traditional mission costs and amortized costs associated with broadly distributing spatial expertise across the planetary community. This special session focuses on the development of a PSDI and the major PSDI elements: users, data, data access, policies, and standards. Finally, we seek to address the overarching impact of changes in technology on PSDIs and the relationship between a PSDI and the NASA Planetary Data System.
