Joint Research with JAXA on Space-borne Laser Altimeter to Create Advanced 3D Map
NTT DATA Corporation, one of the AW3D co-developer, will jointly conduct research with Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to enhance the precision of three-dimensional mapping using laser altimeters (LIDAR1) mounted on a satellite or other spacecraft.
The purpose of this joint research is to solve the technical challenges in 3D mapping from satellites over forest areas covered with trees and vegetation, and to improve the accuracy of 3D maps used in a variety of fields such as disaster response and management as well as preparing various types of hazard maps in the world. The research period will be from January 2021 to March 2022.
