ISRO to create 3D visualisations of Indian heritage sites

Courtesy: ISROIndia: Ministry of Culture under Government of India and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) are planning to preserve and monitor all heritage sites and monuments of national importance. Using data from satellites, ISRO will map and create 3D images of all such heritage sites in the country, and allow everyone to have a virtual tour of the locations. The systematic database of heritage sites and Site Management Plans generated using space technology will help to take appropriate measures in conserving, preserving and monitoring activities of a heritage site. Data from Cartosat-1, Cartosat-2 and Resourcesat LISS IV are being used for creating the database on heritage sites and monuments.
