Abstract

With the increasing number of launched satellite missions in the past years, therewere developed new methods for receiving and combining satellite data, obtaining very accurateresults for mapping the Earth, but also for monitoring the environment in time.Knowing the environment and having the possibility to analyze its evolution in time represent keyelements for a sustainable development.This paper presents theoretical, economic and social aspects regarding the advantages of usingdigital elevation models based on satellite data for monitoring the environment, in order tohighlight the contribution brought to the sustainable development.
