Why this workshop
Mapping of planetary surfaces is a key tool for both science and exploration. The Virtual Observatory (VO) approach and tools, specifically targeting Planetary Science (VESPA) can support geologic mapping of Solar System bodies (PLANMAP) and vice versa. The workshop aims at bringing together the geologic, geospatial and VO communities at a European scale for bringing forward knowledge, tools and standards for mapping the Solar System.
