09 March 2012
The Earth Observation division of the South African National Space Agency (Sansa) recently launched the latest edition of its mosaic of satellite imagery of the whole of South Africa, using data from the Spot 5 earth observation satellite.
Assembled from imagery taken and collected from January 24 to December 20 last year, it is known as the Spot 5 Mosaic 2011.
"The mosaic can be used for many purposes," highlights Sansa Earth Observation production manager Natalie Diemer, "[like] housing and urban planning, agriculture (especially determining crop yields), water and, particularly, dam monitoring, environmental monitoring, forestry monitoring, and so on."
