What is planetary mapping? When do you need to do planetary mapping? How is planetary mapping accomplished? Why is planetary mapping important to you? Planetary mapping is literally foundational to planetary science and exploration. This town hall meeting is intended to present to the general planetary community the need to take planetary and lunar data and turn it into useful, registered cartographic products, at known levels of accuracy, enabling planetary science and exploration.

At LPSC 2013, the USGS Astrogeology Science Center sponsored a town hall about planetary mapping and cartography. The town hall was held March 20, 2013. Download the presentations below.
