Welcome to the ESA Planetary Database

The ESA PDB gathers orbital and gravity data on planetary bodies, moons and small bodies from the Solar System. The idea initiates from the need for a unique, wide, reliable and safe data center, primarily made available to ESA internal projects (Earth Observation and Science missions). The gravity models provided are outputs from the ESA gravity field modeling tool "GRAVMOD", which has the capability to model a wide scope of gravity fields, including highly irregular bodies, in various formats. The scope of PDB is currently being extended to a wider community of users, where participation is encouraged via the Wiki and Forum pages.

For technical questions and support, please contact pdb-service@astos.de.
