Workshop Report - Vespa Mapping workshop

The workshop "Planetary Mapping and Virtual Observatory" took place in Roscoff (France) between April 19th and 21st 2017. The objectives of the workshops included:

  • Share and advance on Surface imaging and mapping (human, computer-aided, geologic, geospatial)
  • Integrate data through OGC and VO standards: opportunities and challenges
  • Disseminate information on available tools and datasets
  • Improve VESPA mapping capabilities (search, discovery, etc.)
  • Contribute to advance standardisation of mapping for small (irregular) bodies

The programme included presentations, tutorials, hands-on and hackathons, as well as discussion sessions. 30 people participated on-site, a third of which were female. In addition, at least 7 remote participants joined remotely the workshop and 2 of them presented.

The entire set of presentations is available freely online. Results from hackathon sessions is available on the relevant GitHub repo hosted by the VESPA GitHub organisation.

Also, almost a third of participants were junior scientists (PhD students) and undergraduates.

A scientific journal special issue/section is planned in the next several months. Follow-up activities will include further work to expand the VESPA user base as well as the addition of new VESPA services from the community. A VESPA service from FU Berlin with ESA MEX HRSC data is being prepared.
