The idea of the session is to provide (also with @luca.penasa @Riccardo_Pozzobon, et al.) some updates and discuss informally the following aspects, related to the 2021 GMAP/PLANMAP Winter School:

  • Provide a short summary of what the GMAP winter school was about
  • Overview/sharing of materials from the school
  • Arrange a quick Mappy hands-on (if participants want to)
  • Discuss possible follow-up / joint activities

Please feel free to suggest anything you might want to add/discuss.

For the birds-of-a-feather tomorrow, please feel free to highlight Open Source or openly accessible) tools for:

  • Base mapping
  • Map-making (contacts, limits, symbology)
  • Specific tasks (e.g. crater size-frequency analysis, e.g. Craterstats
  • Layout

Feel also free to list here (before/during/after sesion) or discuss at the session what you feel could need more efforts wrt documentation, tools availability, etc.

Thanks to all participants.

There was no time to arrange a Mappy demo after the discussion, nor to touch base on ADAM/NEANIAS, among other things.

For the rest, post-PDW/PSIDA one could continue the discussion on #planetary-mapping on Slack
