    • Discussion of tutorials to support the Europa data releases.
    • For tutorials need to decide what we want and have someone assigned to do it.
    • DTM and image align. Would be a GIS style tutorial. How to throw them together, make some profiles.
  • Quick discussion of SPD-41a and copyrights.
    • We’ll keep our license selections to support the need for attribution for data providers.
  • Horizontal datum / Juno:
    • Abstract in for LPSC (Juno part); committed to do the work. Cartography and topography discussed with good results.
  • No discussion at the upcoming Europa Clipper PSG meeting.
    • No spot in the agenda. It is quite full and more working interactions.
    • Instead, we should present this at a monthly science team meeting.
    • Let’s present Monday, March 6th at noon PST.
      • How close are we to having a horizontal datum? We will adopt the datum.
      • Vector data - we have standards for vecvtor data. USGS is willing to host these under the Europa SDI.
      • We are ready for your data.
      • We are ready to help you host and advertise your data in a compliant way.
    • Working to coordinate with JUICE. Who? Mike might have some contacts. Cynthia too.
      • Project science might be a good initial PoC.
  • Data can be uploaded with an abstract.
    • Recommendations about what those data can and can not be. This would be for meeting organizers.
