        Presenter: Lunar Mapping and Modeling Portal Team

Abstract:

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?”.

LMMP Team:

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.

  • New rock type on the lunar farside found by NLSI Team at Brown/MIT

    2010JE003727(2)

    The farside of the Moon has always been a mystery and is only accessible by spacecraft. New compositional information from the Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3) onboard Chandrayaan‐1 has identified a suite of highly unusual rock types exposed at small areas within the farside Moscoviense Basin. M3 is a state‐of‐the art visible and near‐infrared imaging spectrometer that was a guest instrument on Chandrayaan‐1, the Indian Space Research Organization’s (ISRO) first mission to the Moon. The instrument is designed to measure accurately the diagnostic mineral absorption bands of solar radiation reflected from the lunar surface.

The largest impact feature on the Moon is not one of the prominent "seas" that face the Earth, but the huge SPA Basin on the farside.
