Cartosat Series: India's Eye in the Sky for Urban Mapping



The Cartosat series comprises Indian remote sensing satellites designed for Earth observation. Cartosat2, in particular, was a highresolution imaging satellite, part of ISRO's second generation of such satellites. It served primarily for:

Urban and rural development mapping.
Infrastructure planning and management.
Utilization for various cartographic applications.

With its advanced imaging capabilities, Cartosat2 provided data that was indispensable for accurate and detailed urban planning, significantly contributing to the development and monitoring of India's urban infrastructure over more than a decade.

Cartosat2: A Legacy of Urban Transformation

Cartosat2 has been instrumental in various urban planning and development projects. Here are some examples of its applications:

City Expansion Analysis: By providing detailed images, Cartosat2 allowed for the monitoring of urban sprawl and helped in planning new sectors in rapidly expanding cities.
Infrastructure Development: Highresolution images from Cartosat2 were used for designing and monitoring the construction of roads, bridges, and urban transport systems.
Land Use Classification: The satellite's data aided in classifying land use patterns, which is crucial for zoning and regulatory decisions in urban planning.
Disaster Management: It played a role in planning for disaster management by mapping floodprone areas and other vulnerable zones within urban settings.
Environmental Monitoring: Cartosat2 contributed to environmental conservation efforts by mapping green cover, water bodies, and pollution levels in urban areas.

These applications of Cartosat2 underscore its significant role in shaping India's urban landscapes through methodical planning and development.
