IMAGE Data Systems and Formats Workshop

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
Greenbelt, MD 20771
Bldg. 26, Room 105
18-20 March 1998



The second IMAGE data analysis workshop will be held at Goddard on March 19-20. Like the previous meeting, one-on-one interactions with Rick Burley or his staff can be accomplished on the 18th. Chris Gurgiolo will also be available on the 18th for in-depth IDFS demo's and questions. The meeting will finish by noon on the 20th.

The primary objective of the meeting is to decide how raw telemetry data will be formatted for archival at the NSSDC and distributed to investigators on DVD/CDROM. A secondary objective is to further discuss the framework in which application software for viewing and analyzing data will be developed. Anyone who feels the need to influence these basic decisions for the IMAGE meeting should plan on attending the meeting. The following text is the second draft of requirements, definitions, and discussion that can be used to frame the decision making process for determining the distribution and archive format for telemetry data.

All persons planning to attend this meeting must notify Jim Green ( or Rick Burley ( so that visitor badges and authorization can be obtained in advanced. Foreign nationals in particular must provide immediate notification. The meeting will be held in building 26, room 105 at Goddard.
