The services provided by the Solar System Exploration Data Services Office range from analog photographs to web design. The NASA Space Science Data Coordinated Archive (NSSDCA) forms the largest group with the most diverse talents gained over a 40 year span as NASA's permanent data archive. To manage its holdings NSSDCA has built up groups in database management and advanced technology. Besides preserving data, NSSDCA distributes information both in hardcopy and electronic forms. By remaining flexible over the years, NSSDCA has been able to evolve and adapt to a distributed environment. With this background of breadth and depth, SSEDSO was assigned the project management of the Planetary Data System, a premier active archive whose standards have also been adopted by the International Planetary Data Alliance.
