PlanetServer is a Service component of the EC-funded EarthServer-2 project (#654367) aimed at serving and analyzing planetary data online, mainly through OGC Web Coverage Processing Service (WCPS). The focus of PlanetServer is on complex data, particularly hyperspectral imaging and topographic ones. Data from Mars, the Moon and other Solar System Bodies will be available and queriable.
Ingested datasets derive from NASA Planetary Data System (PDS) and ESA Planetary Science Archive (PSA). User interest and community feedback served as input and driver to PlanetServer features and capabilities. Moreover, PlanetServer aims at supportng collaborative data analysis, being able to share planetary data hosted on a database server and querying them from a web client through any supported web browser (Chrome is advised). Please find below all relevant project-wide and service-wide URLs.
PlanetServer new 3D Nasa WorldWind-powered client is going to be soon available. Meanwhile, you can reach the existing EarthServer-1 client.
PlanetServer targets Planetary Science data and community. Online data discovery and analysis is provided through its web services/clients.
A discussion group including developers and partners, power users of PlanetServer and EarthServer is available as Google Group.
Webinars will be available on the EarthServer webinar page in the course of the project.
Legacy documentation is available on the FP7 PlanetServer blog.
The main point of contact is Dr. Angelo Pio Rossi, Service Lead and EarhtServer Coordinator.
Lead developer: Ramiro Marco Figuera.
