With the increased diversity of planetary images, LIDAR and other remote sensing datasets being returned from international planetary orbiters, a number of new mapping techniques and cartographic issues are beginning to emerge. For example how can we utilize automated feature detection and recognition algorithms for data-mining the vast image datasets being returned? What are the accuracies, and limitations of processed cartographic products intended for science use, how can GIS assist in in mission planning?

Public information: This session is intended to highlight present processed mission remote sensing datasets, to discuss examples of how these data can be used, and to describe new processing and mapping techniques.
