Astrogeology Science Center

The NASA/USGS Astrogeology Regional Planetary Information Facility (RPIF), located in the Shoemaker Building (Building 6) on the USGS Campus in Flagstaff, Arizona, is a facility of the USGS Astrogeology Science Center. The Astro RPIF houses in 3000 square feet of climate-controlled space more than 100,000 lunar and planetary maps, a reference library, an ever-growing photo and document archive that chronicles the history and on-going activities of USGS Astrogeology, assorted artifacts including Grover the Apollo-era astronaut training rover, and a work room for visiting researchers. The Astro RPIF is central to USGS Astrogeology's planetary cartography and public outreach projects. Astro RPIF and USGS Astrogeology tours and archival research assistance are available; please contact the RPIF Manager for an appointment.
