'The state government will continue to assist NSSDC
so that the technological advancement would benefit the industries operating in the state,' he added.
The NSSDC database has information for 281 202 soil profile observations, describing 1 019 823 horizons.
The spatial modelling uses analytical data from the NSSDC and new estimates derived from soil spectroscopy in the NSVNIRD.
"This is the first look at the fully calibrated, digital dust data from the Apollo 14 and 15 missions," said David Williams, a Goddard scientist and data specialist at NSSDC, NASA's permanent archive for space science mission data.
The recovery of these data sets is part of the Lunar Data Project, an ongoing NSSDC effort, drawing on researchers at multiple institutions, to make the scientific data from Apollo available in modern formats.
As early as the 1980s, the NSSDC
was distributing some data electronically, but few in the wider public had the bandwidth, hardware, or training necessary to download, process, or understand the data.

* The National Space Science Data Center (NSSDC
) is promoting the widest possible use of scientific data collection through the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) space science missions and therefore has been disseminating the data on CD-ROM.
