The Cartosat series comprises Indian Earth observation satellites constructed and operated by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

The satellite's imagery holds significance for diverse applications, including cartography, urban and rural planning, coastal land use regulation, and utility management such as road network monitoring and water distribution. It aids in creating land use maps, and change detection, and supports various Land Information System (LIS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) applications.

The latest addition to the series is Cartosat-3, launched in 2019. As a third-generation, agile, and advanced satellite, Cartosat-3 boasts very high-resolution imaging capabilities. It provides Panchromatic imagery with a 0.28m resolution and Multispectral imagery in four spectral bands, achieving a spatial resolution of 1.12 m over a nominal swath of approximately 17 Km. The satellite can steer up to +45° and +26 ° along and across the track, respectively.
