As anticipation and public excitement for the grand opening of the Ram temple on Monday reached its peak, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) provided a glimpse of the Ram Mandir as visible from a space satellite.
The image was captured by the Indian Remote Sensing Cartosat satellite on December 16 and processed by the National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC).
The satellite imagery reveals the semi-constructed Ram temple, with an enlarged view providing detailed insights into the ongoing construction of the temple.
Here is Ram Mandir’s satellite image
Cartosat- India’s eye from space
The Cartosat series comprises Indian Earth observation satellites constructed and operated by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).
The satellite’s imagery holds significance for diverse applications, including cartography, urban and rural planning, coastal land use regulation, and utility management such as road network monitoring and water distribution. It aids in creating land use maps, and change detection, and supports various Land Information System (LIS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) applications.
The latest addition to the series is Cartosat-3, launched in 2019. As a third-generation, agile, and advanced satellite, Cartosat-3 boasts very high-resolution imaging capabilities. It provides Panchromatic imagery with a 0.28m resolution and Multispectral imagery in four spectral bands, achieving a spatial resolution of 1.12 m over a nominal swath of approximately 17 Km. The satellite can steer up to +45° and +26 ° along and across the track, respectively.
