Synth Export
This just hit my desk from the excellent ISPRS Commission V on Close-Range Sensing (and check out the useful "Tips" section): Photosynth has suddenly become a lot more interesting now that there is a useful utility to extract data from your synths!...

TanDEM Mission now operational
The TanDEM mission is now operational. I blogged on the launch of TanDEM-X earlier this summer, but this link is worth a read just to highlight how unique a mission this is and also to look forward to seeing what the data is like.

Map World
Map World has been released by China's State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping using imagery collected over the last four years. Its interesting to see another "take" on the Google Maps idea; its not bad but no where near as slick as Google's service. The BBC provide a more detailed review with this snippet quite useful: Within the nation's borders, images have a 2.5m resolution in rural areas and can go down to 0.6m resolution in 300 cities. Beyond its borders, images have a 500m resolution and many nations are blank when users zoom in. One to watch simply because its a completely different set of data.
