When we think of the tools involved in exploring outer space,
images of astronauts collecting mineral samples on the moon may come to mind.
However, scientists also depend on more remote methods to deepen our knowledge
of the solar system and the universe beyond, like those offered by geographic
information science (GIS). GIS space exploration has become a crucial part of
how NASA gets to know the features of other worlds, develops our broader
understanding of geophysics and gathers valuable information about our own planet.
