Hey all,

I am a JPLer working toward improving the user experience of the Planetary Data System. As an interaction designer, my goal is to understand the breadth of the PDS user community. I'd like to speak to any and all willing community members about their experience using the PDS, and the ways it supports your goals as scientists, developers, students, hobbyists, and the like. I'm also interested in learning about ways it can continue to support your goals as we move forward. See our formal solicitation email quoted below.

Hello Everyone! The Planetary Data System (PDS) has started work on our new PDS Data Services Initiative (abstract, poster), a vision to provide an integrated world-wide data services platform that enables the efficient discovery, dissemination, use and analysis of internationally sponsored planetary science archives.

As part of our initial phase, we are kicking off a user study to get a better understanding of our current user needs and requirements. The study will include individual interviews/discussions and some help with playing around with some of the ideas we put together. We are looking for folks across pretty much any domain that interacts with the PDS:
Tool developers
Data providers
Amateur astronomers

Thank you in advance for all of your help!

If you are interested in speaking, please feel free to send me a PM with your email address so I can arrange a day, time, and place (most likely WebEx/Google Hangouts) for our conversation. Thank you for your time and consideration, ya'll.

Thanks, e.

Imagewizards, this is a terrific opportunity to help make the PDS the best it can be for us all. Please consider lending your time & expertise to this worthy project. smile.gif

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.
