NASA Lunar Science Institute (NLSI) Special Director's Online Seminar: The Lunar Mapping and Modeling Portal (LMMP) - Tuesday, February 26 - 1800 (UT)

Relatively simple hemispheric-scale orthographic projection of the Moon centered on the 4.1 billion year old South Pole Aitken basin using the NASA ILIADS application available online through the Lunar Mapping and Modeling Portal (LMMP).
The Lunar Mapping and Modeling Portal (LMMP) is a web-based Portal and a suite of interactive visualization and analysis tools. It allows users to search, view and download mapped lunar data products from past and current lunar missions. Its visualization and analysis tools allow users to perform analysis such as lighting and local hazard assessments including slope, surface roughness and crater/boulder distribution. The data and tools available through the LMMP foster detailed lunar scientific analysis and discovery, and open the door to educational and public outreach opportunities.

This talk and demonstration given by the JPL LMMP team will deliver answers to questions such as "What can LMMP do for you?", "What are the key features?", "What data are available?", "Where to start?", "How to get help?".

Biography: LMMP project management responsibilities reside at Marshall Space Flight Center. JPL LMMP team is responsible for the Portal's development and sustaining. Team members include Emily Law, Shan Malhotra, George Chang, Richard Kim, Bach Bui, Syed Sadaqathullah and Kyle Dodge. The team has extensive experience in architecture, development, and management of complex science information systems.
