The US Geological Survey, who maintains the Planetary GIS Web Server Analyzable Database, has a mission "to produce a Web-based, user-friendly interface aimed at the planetary research community that will support and integrate powerful Geographic Information Systems (GIS) graphical, statistical, and spatial relational tools for analyses of planetary datasets." Visitors will find online maps, data from the Mars Exploration Rover Project, global GIS data, and GIS tutorials. The datasets include vector and raster GIS data that covers everything from geologic age, faults, streams, springs, and oil and gas fields, to elevation and climate data. Researchers involved in GIS and astrology related pursuits will appreciate the unique offerings of this governmental site.
