In the aerospace context, mapping refers to the process of creating maps, charts or images of the Earth's surface, or other celestial bodies using data collected by aircraft or spacecraft. This data can be used for a variety of purposes such as navigation, scientific research, resource management, and military operations.

Examples of mapping in the aerospace context include:

  • Aerial mapping: This is the process of creating maps using data collected by aircraft equipped with cameras, LiDAR, or other sensors that capture images of the Earth's surface from different angles. This data can be used to create detailed topographic maps, digital elevation models, and orthorectified images.
  • Satellite mapping: This is the process of creating maps using data collected by satellites orbiting the Earth. These maps can be used for a variety of purposes such as monitoring natural resources, tracking changes in land use, and monitoring weather patterns.
  • Planetary mapping: This is the process of creating maps of other celestial bodies in our solar system such as planets, moons, and asteroids. This data can be used to understand the geology and geomorphology of these bodies and to plan future missions.

Mapping in the aerospace context is becoming increasingly important as technology is advancing and allowing for more detailed, accurate and up-to-date maps to be produced. This data is crucial for a variety of fields such as navigation, urban planning, disaster management, and many more.
