The tools found on this site are intended for use with Planetary Data System data. They have been created as an exploration into rapid/iterative development based on user feedback.
Please note that these tools are still in development and, while best efforts have been made, there is no guarantee that the tools will work as expected in all cases. Furthermore, as this is an ongoing development process, you may encounter frequent changes to the interface or functionality. We do encourage you to report any defects
you may encounter and we will do our best to address these issues in a timely manner.
The currently hosted tools are as follows:
The Volume Validation Tool is a tool that allows you to validate a single volume against the PDS3 standard. It works by using a Java applet to validate your data on your local file system then uploads the results to this server for presentation, filtering, and data mining.
The Tabular Data Slicer allows you visualize label metadata alongside a tabular data product and extract a portion of the data into a new file. It works by reading a published PDS3 detached label file that defines a table, series or spectrum object. You can select and order the columns of interest to you and filter and sort the rows returned. The output is downloaded as a new tabular file, either fixed width or comma delimited.
The Image Search tool is a simplified search utility to find and preview image files from the archive. It also integrates with Google Earth to display the image footprints on the Moon or Mars.
