Hyderabad, Apr 29 (UNI) The National Remote Sensing Agency (NRSA) would get in the next two days, images from 'Cartosat- 2A' satellite, which was put in orbit along with nine other satellites, carried by PSLV- C9, from Sriharikota yesterday.
According to official sources here, NRSA, an autonomous organisation under the Department of Space (DoS) which was acquiring, processing, supplying aerial and satellite remote sensing data for different needs, was well-equipped to receive the images from Cartosat 2A. It would take two days to get accurate images from the satellite.
The sources said the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), was in touch with NRSA since the satellite was put in orbit. NRSA would start getting the images in two days and start processing them instantly.
Cartosat- 2A, would produce clear images that can be used for making maps to plan urban and rural infrastructure, align rural roads and build settlements.
The Cartosat would also help in conducting land surveys by using satellite images and in solving many land disputes, rendering justice to the real owners of the land, in future.
