Planetary Geologic Mappers Meeting

Active mappers meet once a year during the early summer to present progress on planetary geologic mapping projects. Principal investigators with currently funded NASA geologic mapping projects are required to attend in order to present the status of mapping efforts and obtain guidance for map formatting and submission.

Attendance by scientists and students interested in cartography, geologic mapping, and map-related topical science is encouraged. Meetings are announced by the chair of the Geologic Mapping Subcommittee (GEMS) and are also posted to various community announcement pages, such as the Planetary Exploration Newsletter calendar of events. The Planetary Geologic Mappers meetings are usually held alternately at the USGS in Flagstaff, AZ and other locations where a geologic field trip can be conducted. Starting in 2000, abstracts began to be accepted for meeting presentations. All meeting abstracts can be accessed through the table below.
