The Web Interface for Telescience (WITS) is an Internet-based tool that the Mars Pathfinder mission used for both mission operations at JPL and public outreach. WITS enables the viewing of downlinked images and results in various ways, terrain feature measurement and annotation, and planning of daily mission activities. WITS is written in the Java language and is accessible by mission scientists and the general public via a web browser. The public can use WITS to plan and simulate their own rover missions. WITS will also be used in the 1998 lander and 2001, 2003, and 2005 rover missions to Mars
