Standup Committees

Geologic Mapping Subcommittee

The Geologic Mapping Subcommittee was a standing subcommittee that functions beneath the NASA-recognized Mapping and Planetary Spatial Infrastructure Team (MAPSIT), the advisory (or assessment) panel for planetary spatial infrastructure issues within NASA’s Planetary Science Division.  It officially stood down in March 2017, when its duties were absorbed by the whole MAPSIT Steering Committee.  Below please continue to locate findings from the planetary geologic mapping community to MAPSIT and NASA.
