The joint USGS/NASA Regional Planetary Image Facility (RPIF) at the Astrogeology Science Center in Flagstaff, Arizona is a planetary archive, library, and repository for photographic and supplemental engineering data products. These products include digital datasets derived from all NASA spacecraft missions as well as Earth-based observational data. Our main product is the USGS planetary map collection and a primary aspect of our mission is their distribution. In addition to being the source for planetary maps, the Flagstaff RPIF has unique materials housed in its collections, is a site for ongoing planetary studies, and has valuable connections to other U.S. Geological Survey repositories of terrestrial geologic materials.
