New 3D Map of Iceland

By Iceland Review

New 3D images of Iceland using satellite imagery provide a more accurate picture of Iceland than has been available before. Munich University along with institutions in Germany have been working on the map in cooperation with Icelandic companies, visir.is reports.

The accuracy is down to 10 centimeters and is expected to improve even further. It will also be possible to monitor changes in the landscape such as the coastline and glaciers as well as volcanic eruptions. The technology is used for planning, construction, research, teaching and tourism.

Images from the new map can be viewed here.
