The GMAP Winter School is focused on the production of planetary geological maps of a range of Solar System bodies: building upon earlier editions targeting Mars, the Moon, and Mercury, the 2024 edition will cover exemplary geologic mapping aspects on Venus, Icy Satellites and Small Bodies.
The 2024 edition of the Winter School will be largely hands-on, with the inclusion of seminars and time for asynchronous interaction and individual/project mapping work. Topics covered include: Basemap resources, QGIS project creation, and map crafting hands-on.
The school will run synchronously in the week 22-26 January 2024, and asynchronously on the Streavent platform for the following month (February 2024). As customary, materials will be freely available after the school, for interested parties, to perform self-learning at their pace.
Each body of interest will be introduced, hands-on activities will be described, and participants will be guided through the task, i.e. individual completion of a small mapping area. At the end of each day, specific time slots are dedicated to seminars, which will provide insights, perspectives and additional knowledge on related topics.
After the synchronous and asynchronous phases of the School, no dedicated support will be provided, but any interested party is welcome to participate to the monthly GMAP calls, as well as to join the GMAP Discord server for discussion and support (if interested, please reach out to email@example.com).
During the entire school phases, both synchronous and asynchronous, no offensive, racist or sexist language will be tolerated, and will result in banning.
If any participant feels uncomfortable with the interaction with any of the channels or users, it will be possible to reach out to the admins at firstname.lastname@example.org, or dedicated contacts communicated at the beginning of the school.
