China’s remote sensing satellites help Angkor Wat restoration

China: China is using its remote-sensing satellites to provide environmental data for protection of the ruins of Cambodia's heritage Angkor Wat, a magnificent 12th century Hindu temple. Chinese satellites are using remote sensing to collect and process images of Cambodia's Angkor Wat Temple, inscribed in the UNESCO's World Heritage list in 1992, in real time.

According to a new report, a memorandum of understanding signed by the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth of China, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), HIST and Cambodia's Authority for the Protection and Management of Angkor and the Region of Siem Reap (APSARA) in 2014, enables cooperation in the use of Chinese satellite data. China helped APSARA build a ground station to receive and share the data.
