The Planetary Data System (PDS) archives electronic data products from NASA planetary missions. PDS actively manages the archive to maximize its usefulness. All PDS-curated products are stored in a well-defined format, peer reviewed, fully documented, and available online to scientists and to the public. The PDS is proudly partnering at AGU with the International Planetary Data Alliance (IPDA). The specific mission of the IPDA , chartered by COSPAR and including 14 space agencies, is to facilitate global access to, and exchange of, high quality scientific data products managed across international boundaries. This will be achieved by adhering to a set of governing data standards.
