The Prime Minister shared the pictures of Gujarat's space view on Twitter, and captioned - "Have you come across breathtaking images from the recently launched EOS-06 satellite? Sharing some beautiful images of Gujarat."
The Prime Minister shared four pictures, showing the satellite view of Gujarat, and said " These advances in the world of space technology will help us predict cyclones and promote our coastal economy too," referring to the successful launch of the EOS-06 from ISRO's workhorse, the PSLV-C54.
Gujarat has a coastal length of 1,214 km, covering 16 coastal districts with a huge diversity of marine-based ecosystems.
The EOS-06 satellite along with Eight Nano-satellites were successfully launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre on November 26.
The EOS-06 is a third-generation satellite in the Oseansat series, which provides a continued series of Oseansat-2 with enhanced payload capability.
The EOS-06 is envisaged to observe ocean color data, sea surface temperature, and wind data to use in Oceanography, climatic and meteorological applications.
