The Milky Way in 3D
(v1-The Sun's Neighborhood)
Welcome to a new view of the Milky Way... in 3D!
With community input, milkyway3d.org will serve as a hub for the interconnected set of outreach, education, and research resources that allow astronomers to map out and understand the three-dimensional structure of the Milky Way (especially near the Sun).
The project includes new software development, approaches to data sharing, and scientific research questions propelling our collaboration forward.
All data sets and software collected, connected, and created will be available to all--including educators and learners!
