2017 AAS/DPS Fall Meeting (October 15 & 20, 2017)

Two 2-hour training courses were offered at the AAS/DPS Fall meeting held in Provo, Utah. The courses started with a 30-minute lecture with slides introducing key terms for working with the PDS4 standard. The remaining hour and a half was a guided exercise for participants to work with a simple PDS4 Bundle by building up labels with the provided sample data. All materials were given to the participants on pre-prepared PDS-branded USB thumb drives and can be downloaded as a single .tar file.
