AOGS Session PS-14: Planetary Data in the Big Data Era

Asia Oceania Geosciences Conference 2018, June 3 – 8, Honolulu, Hawaii
Abstract submission deadline: January 19, 2018

Conference website:

This session is about all aspects related to planetary science data, including, but not limited to, data collection, cataloging, archiving,  sharing, searching, manipulation, mining, and the related software  tools. We welcome abstracts on any data-related topics. A tremendous amount of data is being generated every day in planetary science researches. Data technologies are playing more and more important roles in planetary researches, especially in the big data era. Archiving and  public release of all data from planetary science exploration missions as well as ground-based observing and laboratory facilities have been recognized to be of great importance and broad community interest. Data archives provide long-term preservation of a broad variety of raw and high-level data products, with the ultimate goal of facilitating analyses using data covering long time-baselines and multiple observations for the new phenomena and scientific objectives emerging in future times. The collection, archiving, and public release of ever-growing amount of planetary data will ultimately enable the applications of big data technologies in planetary science research. This session is a forum to discuss the new developments in activities, technologies, and concepts related to planetary science data.

Conveners: Jian-Yang Li (Planetary Science Institute, United States), Ludmilla Kolokolova (University of Maryland, United States), Sebastien Besse (ESA, Spain)
