High Resolution Satellite Pictures of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and Tsunami devestation in North-East Japan

Geoeye a provided of digital satellite images has published some high resolution imagery of North-East Japan. I have summarized some of the most impressive ones. Click on the Picktures to get the full resolution for downloading.

This half-meter resolution satellite image shows a derailed train near the town of Shinchi, Japan. The image was taken two days after a 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck the Oshika Peninsula on March 11, 2011. According to news reports, this is the largest earthquake to hit Japan in recorded history and the fifth largest in the world. The image was taken by the GeoEye-1 satellite at 10:21 a.m. (local time) on March 13, 2011 from 423 miles in space as it moved from north to south over Japan at a speed of four miles per second.



This half-meter resolution satellite image of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant was taken three days after a 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck the Oshika Peninsula on March 11, 2011. According to news reports, this is the largest earthquake to hit Japan in recorded history and the fifth largest in the world. The image was taken by the GeoEye-1 satellite at 10:56 a.m. (local time) on March 14, 2011 from 423 miles in space as it moved from north to south over Japan at a speed of four miles per second.

This half-meter resolution satellite image of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant was taken before a 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck the Oshika Peninsula on March 11, 2011. The image was taken by the GeoEye-1 satellite on Nov. 15, 2009 from 423 miles in space as it moved from north to south over Japan at a speed of four miles per second.

This one-meter resolution satellite image of Ishinomaki, Japan was taken one day after a 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck the Oshika Peninsula on March 11, 2011. According to news reports, this is the largest earthquake to hit Japan in recorded history and the fifth largest in the world. The imagery shows extensive destruction to buildings, vehicles and infrastructure. Entire regions have been flooded, swept away or reduced to ruin. The image was taken by GeoEye’s IKONOS satellite at 10:36 a.m. (local time) on March 12, 2011 from 423 miles in space as it moved from north to south over Japan at a speed of four miles per second.

The image was taken by the GeoEye-1 satellite on April 4, 2010 from 423 miles in space as it moved from north to south over Japan at a speed of four miles per second.

This half-meter resolution satellite image of Rikuzentakata, Japan was taken two days after an 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck the Oshika Peninsula on March 11, 2011. According to news reports, this is the largest earthquake to hit Japan in recorded history and the fifth largest in the world. The imagery shows extensive destruction to buildings, vehicles and infrastructure. Entire regions have been flooded, swept away or reduced to ruin.

Tesla Model 3 - Dashboard Concept

Will 2017 be the year of Tesla Model 3? At last years Telsa Model 3 introduction event Elon Musk stated that first Model 3 will be shipped to customers by the end of 2017. Latest news show that currently production lines are set up and first Model 3 shall be produced by July 2017 and delivered mainly to employees as beta tester. For this reason it is very likely that we will see some Model 3 on Californias roads by mid of this year. Some expert expect the total production of cars for 2017 to 30000 up tp 50000 cars, where high production rates will be reached not before 2018.

The design of the Model 3 is well known since the introduction event back in March 2016, and it is expected that the outside will not change much. But there are some roumors that there will be quite some changes on the interior of the car especially the dashbord.

Recently I came across a new dashboard study. Have a look here.

ArcGIS 10.1 Beta Launch and Deprecation Plan

ArcGIS 10.1 Beta 1 is now available for download to all those that have registered and been accepted into the program. Downloads have been made available from the Customer Care Portal and information and how to access this can be found on the ArcGIS Beta Community Site. This site is the portal for all information related to the beta.

One big drawback of ArcGIS 10.1:
There is no change in Desktop at 10.1 in regards to 64-bit support. ArcMap is a 32-bit application, but ESRI do support it running on 64-bit Windows. Currently ESRI is workung on a research project for native 64-bit ArcGIS application but it is not going to make 10.1.
ArcGIS 10.1 Deprecation Plan:
ARCGIS DESKTOP 10.1 ArcGIS 10.1 will no longer support the Solaris versions of ArcReader and ArcGIS Engine.ArcGIS 10.1 will be the last release supporting ArcReader for Linux.  SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5 will be supported.  However, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 and Red Hat Enterprise Lin…

Precize 3-D model of Mount Everest

The highest mountain on earth is now available as 3D terrain model free for download. The resolution of the model is 50 by 50 cm. Not everyone can climb the Mount Everest (even though several hundred cimbs are registered each year, and still claim their victims) from their living room.

Scientists of the DLR (Deutsches Institut für Luft- und Raumfahrt) together with 3D Realitymaps and Digitalglobe have calculated a realistic three-dimensional model based on satellite imagery. The software for calculating the model was originally used for making 3D models of Mars. According to scientists currently it is not possible to create a more precise model based on civil satellites. The 8848 meters high mountain was recorded by various satellites and different angles. These data builds the foundation of the terrain model and 3D textures. To use the model on your personal computer you have to install a special viewer which can be downloaded via htt…
