First images from CARTOSAT-2 released

I know I have been quiet on the blogging front this week, as I am trying to cram in catching up on grading work, lecturing, and preparing presentation for the big AAG conference next week in San Francisco, but I wanted to put up a quick note that the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) released the first imagery from CARTOSAT-2, the 12th in the line of IRS remote sensing satellites, which was launched on January 10, 2007. The panchromatic imagery has a spatial resolution of 1 meter, and will be available for purchase commercially. India is looking to continue its presence in the international remotely-sensed data market, and
will also be using the new imagery for their own domestic mapping needs.
