The International Planetary Data Alliance (IPDA), founded in 2006, is a closely cooperating partnership to maintain the quality and performance of data (including data formats) from planetary research using instruments in space.

Member organizations participate in both its Steering committee and on specific projects related to building standards and interoperable systems.

Specific tasks include promoting the international exchange of high-quality scientific data, organized by a set of standards to facilitate data management. Planetary Data System, recognized by the Committee on Space Research (COSPAR), is the de facto standard for archiving planetary data.
