Photos taken during planetary missions can be now transformed into 3D landscape models.
This is possible thanks to a new imaging system developed by the EU-funded project ProVisG.
The new technology can also be used in other applications.
It could help, for example, to document the devastation level in a nuclear disaster zone without the necessity of putting human lives at risk.
First terrain tests were successfully conducted in 2011.
