The Terrain Mapping Camera
2 (TMC2) on board the orbiter will take sub 5 m resolution images of the lunar surface, and will allow ISRO scientists to create 3D maps.
In fact, the spacecraft will be able to give a large amount of data from the sophisticated instruments such as the Terrain Mapping Camera
besides fulfilling many scientific objectives.
Presumably the mapping camera
didn't span as far as those blue trunks.
Scientists at the Space Applications Centre (SAC), using data gathered from Chandrayaan-I's Terrain Mapping Camera
and Hyper Spectral Imager (HySI) payloads, found a 1.2km long buried, uncollapsed and near horizontal lava tube.
Aero-Metric, Huntsville, Ala, a major provider of professional geospatial services with locations across the United States, has acquired its third Intergraph Z/I Imaging Digital Mapping Camera
(DMC) to expand its high-quality, aerial imaging capabilities.
As the Houston meet draws near, ISRO researchers are trying hard to analyse information gathered by their payloads -- terrain mapping camera
and hyper spectral imager.
The onboard Differential Absorption Lidar (DIAL) sensor detects gas leaks and the system also captures photo imagery from both a high-resolution mapping camera
and a color digital video camera that helps operators verify leak and emission indications.
Designed for people interested in converting from analog to digital airborne imaging, the RCD100 is a completely integrated medium-format mapping camera
. The temperature-controlled camera housing contains the control unit, interchangeable solid state memory, Leica IPAS20 inertial positioning and attitude system with IMU, and up to two 39 megapixel frame sensors for single head or dual-head operation.
Within three weeks it worked its way into a 100-km circular orbit around the Moon, where its Indianbuilt Terrain Mapping Camera
began imaging the surface with 5-meter resolution.
Kodak Aerochrome conventional color (0.40 to 0.70 [micro]m) type 2448 film was used with a Fairchild type K-37 large format (23 cm by 23 cm) mapping camera
. The camera aperture setting was f8 at 1/250 sec.
Integrated mapping capabilities allow the system to perform photogrammetry and measurement without using an external mapping camera
. The built-in applications allow instantaneous handling of the collected data to provide the user with measurement results of surfaces and features, comparisons to CAD, and digital and virtual assembly tools and reporting.
