Geological Mapping

Up to date geological maps of planetary bodies are released on a regular basis only by the United State Geological Survey which follows a standardized production of map quadrangles. However the great amount of highly differentiated dataset from planetary missions calls for innovative non standard products and established networks of institutions and scientists all over the world devoted to geological mapping and 3d geo-models. It is high time to maximize the scientific output of planetary missions and improve the position of Europe in this context.
