The Planetary Science Division of the NASA’s Science Mission Directorate is pleased to announce the release of the Planetary Data System Roadmap Report. Produced over the course of a year by 14 members of the planetary science community under the direction of chairman Dr. Ralph McNutt of JHU/APL, the Roadmap Report summarizes an assessment of the current state of PDS, highlights community-based findings regarding a variety of topics including tools, tutorials, archive efficiency, and the role of the PDS in providing access to data generated by grants, and will serve as a guide for PDS operations as they evolve over the next decade.
