The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Wednesday released a fresh 3-D photo of an impact crater on the moon’s surface captured by the Chandrayaan-2.
The Terrain Mapping Camera-2 (TMC-2) provided images at 5m spatial resolution and stereo triplets (fore, nadir and aft views) from a 100 km orbit for preparing Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of the complete lunar surface.
Have a look of 3D view of a crater imaged by TMC-2 of #Chandrayaan2. TMC-2 provides images at 5m spatial resolution & stereo triplets (fore, nadir and aft views) for preparing DEM of the complete lunar surface.

The triplet images from TMC-2, when processed into Digital Elevation Models, enable mapping of surface landform morphologies including — craters, lava tubes (potential sites for future habitability), rilles, dorsa or wrinkle ridges, graben structures, and lunar domes or cones.
