QGIS for planetary mapping

Starting from version 3.x, QGIS starts to have nice capabilities for the development of geoscientific maps.

Let’s start the discussion from this material and data presented today at the 4th Planetary Data Workshop held in Flagstaff, AZ


  • Audience: viewing raster dataset can be very slow
    • Alessandro: use pyramids (also from the CL using gdal) and enable GL accelerator
  • Audience: plugin to flicker between two datasets?
  • Audience: Why is Arc still more used by researchers than QGIS?
    • Still not mature enough, especially from a symbology point of view
    • What universities use to teach GIS
