GeoTagging Mars Science 

   Like many of you, 2020 surprised me with an unprecedented opportunity to stay home. In addition to the usual activities of gardening, baking, and wearing out the Netflix queue, I have worked to develop the programming skills to develop a long-standing project idea.

   As a researcher, I spend a lot of time searching for science papers on Google Scholar and even more time exploring the planets on Google Earth. What I want, was a service that would be the best of both worlds and show me where on the planets as science been done and published. To create this, I have had to learn Python, Javascript, HTML and just enough database entry to create a way to display where science has been done. This is very much an ongoing effort, but I welcome you to check out my first attempt at geotagging the science of Mars.
