  • 1. European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2007 Session PS2.4: Lunar Science and Exploration Vienna, Austria, 15 - 20 April 2007 A LUNAR GEOSCIENCES DATABASE – THE EARTH’S MAPPLACE ANALOGGerald G. Carlson, Copper Ridge Explorations Inc.; John A. Chapman, J.A. Chapman Mining Services; Ward E. Kilby, Cal Data LtdLunar science is now the focus of space missions planned by China, Europe, India, Russia and USA inpreparation for a human return to the Moon around 2020. A series of new orbital, lander and roverspace vehicles are scheduled to remote sense and sample the lunar surface in preparation for the humanreturn. These missions will build upon the scientific databases created by prior missions undertaken byUSA, Russia and Europe and they will utilize advanced technology in acquiring vast amounts of highresolution scientific data. This paper proposes the development of a lunar geosciences database similarto the British Columbia MapPlace that has recently been ranked by the international mining communityas the best geological database in the world. MapPlace was developed by the British ColumbiaGeological Survey as an internet-based GIS that integrates geographical, geological, geophysical,geochemical, imagery and land tenure data as an aid to mineral exploration. It has enjoyed wide successin delivering a very large array of geosciences data freely via the internet to industry, government andacademia for more than ten years. The authors recommend the development of a lunar geosciencesdatabase similar to MapPlace using state-of-the-art information management technology. AUTHORSGerald G. Carlson, Ph.D., is a Professional Geological Engineer (British Columbia and Yukon). He hasworked internationally for 36 years in the mineral exploration industry and is actively involved in theexecutive of several professional geosciences associations. His Ph.D. was related to remote sensing ofmineral resources via earth satellites.John A. Chapman, B.Sc., FCIM, is a Professional Mining Engineer (British Columbia). He has workedfor 41 years in the mining industry in mineral exploration, operations, and engineering and as anexecutive. He has been instrumental in the development of several mines in Canada - some in adversenorthern locations.Ward E. Kilby, M.Sc., is a Professional Geologist (British Columbia). He has worked for 26 years in abroad range of applied and research positions related to the geosciences. He is an expert on digital andstatistical analysis of mineral resources and is recognized as the founding “champion” of MapPlace.
