DLR researchers recreate the 'Roof of the World' using optical satellite data at a resolution of 50 centimetres - a collaborative venture with DigitalGlobe and 3D RealityMaps

For the first time, researchers from the German Aerospace Center (DLR) have depicted Mount Everest, the 'Roof of the World', in 3D using optical satellite data at a maximum resolution of just half a metre. These 3D images are the outcome of a collaborative venture between the DLR Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics and the companies 3D RealityMaps GmbH and DigitalGlobe. A video allows the viewer to follow the route taken by 15 mountaineers on a current expedition to the summit of the world's highest mountain.

May all beings be happy and create the causes of happiness.
May they all be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
May they attain that sacred happiness,
which can never be tainted by suffering,
May they come to rest in the boundless equanimity,
free from worldly bias to friends and enemies.
