2023 GMAP Planetary Geologic Mapping Winter School

30 January - 3 February 2023 - Online

The school is dedicated to the production of planetary geological maps of the Moon and Mars with particular emphasis to landing sites characterization.

The 2023 Winter School will be largely hands-on, with the inclusion of seminars and time for asynchronous interaction and individual/project mapping work.

The topics necessary to produce high-quality planetary cartography including QGIS Open Source software use (project creation, digitalization, and layout), hands-on mapping, hazard and trafficability of landing sites and machine learning applications for planetary geological mapping are covered.

We encourage interested participants to review the content of the 2021 and 2022 Winter Schools. This content will serve as a good introduction to the 2023 GMAP Winter School.
