Images from ASTER onboard
NASA’s Terra satellite show
how one area in South Korea
transformed from a mountain
forest to a world-class
downhill skiing venue to
get ready for the
2018 Winter Olympics.
These images show the area
in 2013 before the Centre
was built, after it was
completed, and finally
during the Olympic Games
in February.
An additional image from
Sentinel-2B shows the ski
slopes in higher resolution
and natural color.
Remote sensing satellites
will be able to monitor
the mountain to see any
land changes that happen
after the Games.
