Announcement: March 19, 2020

Dear Colleagues,

We regret to inform you that 2020 Annual Meeting of Planetary Geologic Mappers scheduled for June 16–18, 2020 at the Planetary Science Institute in Lakewood, Colorado will be cancelled due to concerns about COVID-19. This difficult decision has been made after a careful assessment of the risks as determined by the CDC and WHO. We are fully committed to ensuring that our meeting attendees and staff remain safe and well.

Please keep June 16 and 17 open on your calendars. We anticipate holding a teleconference on one of those days to report on the status of the mapping community and solicit feedback. Please refer to this website for updated information regarding teleconference details.

Meeting Location and Dates

We are happy to announce the 2020 Annual Meeting of Planetary Geologic Mappers scheduled for June 16–18, 2020 at the Planetary Science Institute in Lakewood, Colorado.

Purpose and Scope

The purpose of the annual meeting of planetary geologic mappers is to report progress on NASA-funded geologic mapping projects. Other planetary geologists who are conducting geologic mapping are also welcome to attend. The meeting serves as a venue to discuss problems and issues relevant to the planetary mapping community. Findings are determined from plenary discussion sessions and then presented to the MAPSIT Steering Committee to forward to NASA Headquarters Program Officers. The meeting usually includes a GIS Q&A session with USGS scientists, and this year will include a discussion of potential next generation of maps required for future landings and exploration on the Moon and Mars.
