What is SPIF?

SPIF - The Spacecraft Planetary Imaging Facility is part of an international network of planetary research and outreach facilities known as RPIF-N - The Regional Planetary Image Facility Network.

We maintain planetary image data including geologic maps and mission documentation, providing support to researchers and the public who wish to access and manipulate the data available.

SPIF is sponsored jointly by NASA's Planetary Geology and Geophysics Program and Cornell University, located in Ithaca, NY and open to the public.
