SSERVI and JPL’s Lunar and Planetary Mapping and Modeling Team are pleased to announce the beta release of Moon Trek, our new mapping and modeling portal for the Moon.
Moon Trek is a major new release that significantly upgrades and builds upon the capabilities of its predecessor, NASA’s Lunar Mapping and Modeling Portal (LMMP). The new Trek interface aims to greatly improve navigation, 3D visualization, fly-overs, performance, and reliability. Use of the Trek interface also provides compatibility with the other portals developed by NASA’s Lunar and Planetary Mapping and Modeling Project.
Behind the scenes, this release also entails upgrades to LMMP’s back-end infrastructure and services. We have invited registered users of LMMP to join the group of beta testers for Moon Trek at http://moontrek.jpl.nasa.gov/. We also invite you, our stakeholders, to try out this beta release.
In order to access the advanced analysis tools, sign into Moon Trek from the menu icon in the upper left of the screen, and use the username “moontrek” and password “trekmoon”. The option to take the guided tour when the program opens will introduce you to the features of the new interface. You will want to use a recent version of the Chrome or Firefox browsers (see system requirements under the menu).
Also under the menu, please use the Feedback option to send us your observations and suggestions. You can also contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to your input in helping us to make sure that Moon Trek meets the requirements of our community of users.
