Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS)

Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) is a collaborative effort to create standards for space data.

Interesting because:

  1. Space exploration get funding from governments
  2. Subjects for mapping in a variety of formats, etc.

Assuming that agreement can be reached on the format for a mission, the question remains how do we integrate that data with articles, books, presentations, data from other missions or sources, and/or analysis of other data?

That agreement is reached on a format for one mission or even one set of data, is just a starting point for a more complicated conversation.
