Chandrayaan-2 captured 3D image of the crater on the moon

A fresh 3-D photo of an impact crater on the moon’s surface.

On Wednesday, November 13, 2019, ISRO released images of an impact crater on the moon’s surface captured by Terrain Mapping Camera-2 (TMC-2).

TMC-2 provides images at 5m spatial resolution & stereo triplets from a 100 km orbit for preparing the Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of the complete lunar surface. These images, when processed into Digital Elevation Models, enable mapping of surface landform morphologies, including craters, lava tubes, rilles, lunar domes, etc.

Take a look at these images.
