A new depth map of the planet
« on: 9 January 2017, 15:30:36 »
"Five years of observations from tandem satellites produce 3D world map of unprecedented accuracy.

A pair of satellites operating in tandem for five years have produced a depth map of the planet so exact you could theoretically zoom down to street level and tell an adult from a kid, or spot a breaking wave at Malibu. The immense database — some 2.6 petabytes — is available for free to researchers."
