An interesting interview in Geoconnexion this month with the Chairman and MD of Infoterra, the commercial operating arm (from a public-private consortium) of TerraSAR-X/TanDEM-X.

TanDEM-X will deliver a DEM product that has a claimed vertical accuracy of ~2 m and spatial resolution of 12 m. Whilst this is impressive, as TanDEM-X will be a polar orbiting satellite, the entire landmass of the Earth will be imaged within 3 years (i.e. a global DEM).

Well I have to eat a little bit of humble pie and say I have actually bought a new mobile phone. Shock, horror! Whilst I was away in China a borrowed a Nokia 1101 and liked it so much that I bought one. Whilst it doesn't do anything more than the old T180 could (texting and phone), I have to say that not only is it much smaller andlighter, but it also is much more refined. And of course at £20 it stays within my remit of cheap and functional!
