Major progress in theoretical formalism of the interior structure of the Nucleon over the last 30 years has led to breakthroughs in our understanding of the theory of the fundamental substructure of the protons and neutrons. At the same time, the technical advances in particle accelerator and state of the art experimental detection technologies along with dramatic developments in computing power and algorithms, have brought us to the threshold of a new science. Large amounts of data (~PB per week) will need to be analyzed to provide the experimental input to the 3D proton/neutron imaging. The characterization and visualization of these distributions is an additional challenge. We will present the status and the plans for the current and future experiments and discuss the required interdisciplinary effort between physics theory and experiment, computing in data science, imaging/visualization and mathematics to start addressing some of the fundamental questions at the sub-femtometer scale critical to the understanding of our universe.
