Moon Mappers is the lunar component of the CosmoQuest project. The guiding principles of the CosmoQuest project as a whole are explained in the post Why CosmoQuest? Moon Mappers shares these principles, but with a focus on the Moon.
It is our hope that Moon Mappers will be more, do more, and ask more of you than ever before. For that reason, we also want to teach more, so that you can do your job well. As you look at images from planetary surface in general, and the Moon in particular, you will come to understand that surface geology is complex. Training is required to effectively indentify and interpret it. We want to give you that training and the tools to put your new knowledge into practice.
