Integrated Lunar Information Architecture for Decision Support (ILIADS) is a lunar GIS that executes on a user-provided laptop or desk side computer. ILIADS supports 3D visualizations of the lunar surface, a suite of quantitative analysis tools, and analysis functions that can be invoked by user-developed scripts.

You will need to download the ILIADS software from the Portal TOOLS tab. Click on the .exe file that downloads to extract the software from the downloaded file. You will need Administrative privileges to successfully install the software.
