Latest Satellite Images of China from LANDSAT-9
The China Remote Sensing Satellite Ground Station (RSGS), a major national S&T facility hosted by the Aerospace Information Research Institute (AIR) under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), has recently acquired the capability to receive, process and distribute the data product transmitted from the LANDSAT-9 satellite.
The LANDSAT-9 satellite was launched last September and started operation this year.
The satellite images include several spots across China which are recently captured by LANDSAT-9. The images are processed by the engineers from RSGS.
