Exploring Planetary Surfaces with NASA’s Solar System Treks

Brian Day

Join Brian Day, of NASA's Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute, for a presentation on Exploring Planetary Surfaces with NASA’s Solar System Treks. Learn about NASA’s Solar System Treks project that is producing a suite of online interactive visualization and analysis portals. There are now seven web portals in the program available to the public. This list includes portals for the Moon, Mars, Vesta, Ceres, Titan, and recently Mercury. All of these are unified under a new project home site with supporting content. In this talk, Day will discuss ways that students and members of the public can use these portals to conduct their own explorations of planetary surfaces, measuring diameters of craters, creating elevation profiles of peaks and valleys, and plotting traverse paths.
