that have relevance to planetary studies.
is the Geological Remote Sensing Field Experiment
conducted in the southwestern United States in 1989 to
provide a variety of data sets for testing the modeling
of planetary surfaces.
Laboratory-based data sets include Mars soil
analog measurements from the Bloomsburg University
Goniometer (BUG), and Mars analog handlens-scale images
and measurements of samples from various field
The Wallops/GSFC Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM)
obtained LIDAR observations of explosion craters over
Nevada Test Site.
Pre-Magellan data collection was assembled in
advance of the 1990 Magellan mission to Venus to provide
relevant radar and gravity data for comparison to
Magellan data. It includes some Earth-based data sets.
