Satellites have allowed accurate and direct travel on land, sea and air, regardless of the means of transport and the distance traveled. Information provided by a range of GPS satellites has become an essential element in ensuring the safety and security of users of various means of transportation. These satellites have also provided high-resolution maps that have supported development efforts in various forms.
Additionally, satellites contributed to the construction and development of various types of maps such as the topographical, thematic, digital altitudes, three-dimensional maps and various energy and sanitation services. These maps are an important aspect of our contemporary life and are closely linked to the sustainable development of societies.
