http://planetserver.eu is the main point of access for the Planetary Service of EarthServer (aka PlanetServer).
Planetary Science data collected so far are approaching the order of magnitude of Earth Observation-like volumes (see our XLDB2013 presentation):
PlanetServer tackle the exploitation of this growing datasets largely through WCPS.
Data volume ingested so far is beyond 2 TB.
Classic & Neo Web Clients
Classic and Neo clients are focused on surface science data, particularly hyperspectral (NASA MRO CRISM).
Classic accessible on http://planetserver.eu/classic (Chrome preferred)
Neo (main server now being upgraded) on http://neotest.planetserver.eu (Chrome preferred)
one can identify and select the desired scenes, e.g.
Main analytical interface
after selecting the desired CRISM scene, the WCPS-based (Table of contents, graph window, console, toolbars) is available:
The CRISM observation FRT00003E12 would then be reachable through the URL:
Direct access to a certain CRISM observation is possible on Classic, e.g.:
VNIR for Nili Fossae:
VNIR, IR channels are accessible from the Table of Contents.
For example, a classical false colour composite can be created using R =band 234 (2.54 µm) - G = 82 (1,51 µm) – B= 14 (1,09 µm):
R – 2.54 µm –> Band234
G – 1.51 µm –> Band82
B – 1.09 µm–> Band14
paying attention to the fact that the channel tab in the Table of Contents should be on “IR” and not “VNIR”.
Spectra can be collected on desired points with the Spectrum button:
and multiple collections are possible.
e.g. in the example above:
Purple: a rather featureless dusty spectrum (that can be used as reference for ratios, see http://blog.planetserver.eu/?p=286)
Blue: Fe-Mg rich phyllosilicates (clays) ((1.9 and 2.3 μm bands)
Green: Olivine (wide 1 μm absorption)
Red: Carbonates (2.3 and 2.5 μm bands)

MARSIS Web Client
The MARSIS web client is reachable at http://marsis.planetserver.eu (Firefox preferred). It provides access to radar sounding subsurface data from Mars, acquired by the ESA Mars Express MARSIS experiment.
results are provided on a new tab
Data and simulation can be observed together and compared:
A web map interface (inherited and simplified from Classic/Neo web clients) allows selection of single footprints
