ABSTRACT
The Adviser prototype system makes it possible for planetary geologists to conduct virtual field research on remote environments such as Antarctica and Mars. Among Adviser?s interactive tools are mission-planning and measurement tools that let researchers generate new data and gain interpretive insights. Five case studies illustrate the system?s applications and observed benefits.
INDEX TERMS
