Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has released an image of crater captured by the payload on Chandrayaan-2 which has been collecting data about the lunar surface, reports Times Now.
The latest image shared by ISRO shows a 3D view of a moon crater and the space agency has also shared initial results of topographic mapping data collected using TMC-2.
As per ISRO, Terrain Mapping Camera-2 (TMC-2) is a follow-on of the TMC on-board Chandrayaan-1. TMC-2 provides images (0.4μm to 0.85μm) at 5m spatial resolution & stereo triplets (fore, nadir and aft views) from a 100 km orbit for preparing Digital Elevation model (DEM) of the complete lunar surface.
The triplet images from TMC-2 when processed into Digital Elevation Models, enable mapping of surface landform morphologies.
