The Cartography and Imaging Sciences Discipline Node (aka "Imaging Node") of the Planetary Data System is the curator of NASA's primary digital image collections from past, present and future planetary missions. Imaging provides to the NASA planetary science community the digital image archives, ancillary data, sophisticated data search and retrieval tools, and cartographic and technical expertise necessary to develop and fully utilize the vast collection of digital planetary images of many terrestrial planetary bodies, including icy satellites. Imaging science expertise includes orbital and landed camera instrument development and data processing, data engineering and informatics, planetary remote sensing at UV to RADAR wavelengths, and cartographic and geospatial data analysis and product development.
