India's ambitious Earth observation program was commissioned in March 1988
with the launch of Indian Remote Sensing Satellite 1A (IRS-1A). Since then
the program has provided data for the management of natural resources and other tasks
such as the mapping and planning of urban areas.
The sensors of subsequent missions are designed to provide data continuity
and to utilise recent technical progress at the same time.
This section provides fact sheets of the IRS missions Euromap is receiving
data from and for which we plan to do so in the near future.
