MITM2 | Open Science and Big Data for the Planets and the Heliosphere: Projects, Accomplishments, and Opportunities

MITM2

Open Science and Big Data for the Planets and the Heliosphere: Projects, Accomplishments, and Opportunities
Convener: Baptiste Cecconi | Co-conveners: Anne Raugh, Arnaud Masson

Solar and planetary astronomy has always been a data-intensive science, and new observatories and spacecraft are gathering data at an unprecedented scale. However, to maximize the scientific return on this investment, researchers need access to an infrastructure that provides open access to data, correlative data, and common standards for communication and information exchange between repositories. Initiatives like NASA's Planetary Data Ecosystem, Europlanet/VESPA, ESA Datalabs, and NASA's Helio-Cloud are taking the first steps toward building such an infrastructure. We invite contributions showcasing open science opportunities and accomplishments in Heliophysics and Planetary science that highlight one or more of these capabilities, particularly those involving international standards such as IVOA, OGC, IPDA, and IHDEA.
