The 3D GIS MINERVA, which is developed by JR, VRVis and EOX for a collaborative, holistic planetary science data infrastructure, allows members of different instrument teams to cooperate synergistically in virtual workspaces by sharing observation information, analysing and annotating the data.

The technologies developed in the MINERVA project allow instrument data of planetary surfaces to be combined and three-dimensionally visualized. MINERVA, a cooperation between JOANNEUM RESEARCH, VRVis and EOX, used a combination of Big Data, visualization and 3D database technologies.
