The Planetary Geologic Mapping Protocol covers the idealized process of compiling a NASA-funded map product of a non-terrestrial solid surface planetary body for U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) publication and summarizes technical specifications of the Mapping Process for authors and reviewers. Directed by community and programmatic recommendations, the USGS Planetary Geologic Map Coordination Group assembled the content herein to aid the timely production of USGS map products. This document can be also used as a reference document by those researchers who are completing geologic maps that will be published outside the USGS.
