NASA and Japan released a significantly improved version of the most complete digital topographic map of Earth on Monday, produced with detailed measurements from NASA's Terra spacecraft. The map, known as a global digital elevation model, was created from images collected by the Japanese Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer, or ASTER, instrument aboard Terra. So-called stereo-pair images are produced by merging two slightly offset two-dimensional images to create...

Two German radar satellites that are being used to create the most detailed 3D map of the Earth's entire surface, have moved to within 1150 feet of each other in what scientists are calling a "tight formation."The pair of satellites, TanDEM-X and TerraSAR-X, are sweeping around the globe at about 4.5 miles per second. They will soon begin an intense observation campaign that will pin down the variation in height across the Earth's surface to a precision of better than 7 feet.The digital...

Australia has been stripped bare of vegetation to expose the surface that lies beneath. Scientists from CSIRO's Water for a Healthy Country Flagship have removed approximately 90 percent of Australia's vegetation cover from satellite images of the continent to produce the most detailed available Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of its topography. "The DEM will revolutionize geological applications, land-use studies, soil science, and much more," CSIRO's Dr John Gallant said in an address today...

The U.S. and Japanese space agencies have produced a digital topographic map of Earth that covers more of our planet than ever. The map was created from nearly 1.3 million individual stereo-pair images collected by the Japanese Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer that's aboard NASA's Terra satellite. This is the most complete, consistent global digital elevation data yet made available to the world, said Woody Turner, NASA program scientist. Mike Abrams, the...

Envisat and ERS-2, ESA's two veteran Earth missions, have completed a second tandem observation campaign. The technique involved flying the two satellites in precisely coordinated orbits, generating valuable new radar data for modeling Arctic terrain. Both Envisat and ERS-2 are equipped with synthetic aperture radar (SAR) instruments that can generate highly accurate radar images of any region of the Earth's surface. By combining two or more SAR images taken by one satellite of the same site,...
