Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is all set to launch its own satellite imaging system on its website within six months. The system will be similar to geo-mapping service Google Earth or even better than this. According to ISRO, their images qualities will be much better than what is provided by Google Earth right now.
ISRO launched the PSLV C-9 with two satellites CARTOSAT-2A and IMS-1 last month.
“With the lunch of eight nano-satellites, India has become the world’s second country, after Russia, to launch multi-satellites with Polar Satellite Launch Vehicles (PSLV),” he said.
Nair said the Remote Sensing Satellites (RSS) provide imagery of the earth in a variety of spectral bands and with a resolution better than one metre.
“Data from our RSS are received at about 20 different stations across various parts of the world, including the US and Europe,” he said.
