European Planetary GIS Workshop, May 5-7 2015, Madrid

2 December 2014 ESA and its Planetary Science Archive (PSA) User Group are pleased to announce a Planetary GIS Workshop that will be held on May 5-7 2015 at ESAC (Madrid, Spain). During this workshop the following broad areas will be presented and discussed:

• scientific needs and use cases (existing, new, cross-disciplinary);
• existing technical solutions;
• open problems and areas suitable to improvement (particularly with respect to future PSA)

The workshop aims at targeting geospatial data users and producers in broad sense. An informal combination of presentation, hands-on and discussion sessions is envisaged.
