Former OpenPlanetary Blog posts

Three years ago (Sep 2016), we started our first blog with the idea to generate and share content useful to the planetary science community: news, updates, articles and tips related to data, tools and workflows. Although quite successful, we decided a year later to move our blog to the Medium publishing platform in order to reach more readers: Today, we are still using Medium for blogging. However, we intend to keep technical posts for this Forum.

Feel free to explore our former blog posts and, for authors, to migrate them to this forum when appropriate:
