Planetary cartography gives spatial meaning to remotely sensed datasets by incorporating a planetary reference frame in which all measurments can be related. This session will highlight examples and trends of work being conducted in planetary cartography. It will illustrate how new mission data are being mapped, and how archive imagery is being reprocessed to help reveal new science. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Data Mining of imagery are two techniques that have, and will help, to unravel information from the current flood of planetary remote sensing data. Future concepts of remote sensing instruments and mapping techniques, and how these can improve resolutions, and accuracies of spatial measurements will also be discussed.

Public information: This session will describe the latest trends in planetary mapping and Geographical Information Systems.
