This is the Web site of the Project Office for NASA's Planetary Data System (PDS). The Office is located at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center as part of the Solar System Exploration Division in the Solar System Exploration Data Services Office (SSEDSO).

The Planetary Data System is a distributed archive of data products from NASA planetary missions. PDS actively manages the archive to maximize its usefulness, and it has become a basic resource for scientists around the world. PDS is composed of eight teams, called "nodes." There are five science nodes organized primarily by subdisciplines of the planetary sciences. The remaining three nodes provide systems engineering, navigation and ephemeris information, and image processing support. [See "About the Nodes".]
