New satellite image mosaic of South Africa launched

South Africa: The South African National Space Agency (Sansa) officially unveiled the “Spot 5 National Mosaic 2012”. This is a mosaic which covers the entire country and is composed of images taken by the French Spot 5 Earth observation satellite last year. The 2012 edition is the seventh such mosaic of the country compiled from Spot imagery.

“The Spot mosaic represents a commitment that Sansa has made, to provide quality data and services to a variety of users,” explained Sansa Earth observation stakeholder and new business development manager Imraan Saloojee. “It is used for decision-making as well as [being] used to bring benefits to society.”
