A flyby around Mt Fuji volcano, Japan was created completely from ASTER data, It shows how ASTER's stereo imaging capability will allow us to produce detailed elevation data. Topography is one of the most important and basic characteristics of the land. By combining the elevation with image data, we can visualize the 3-dimensional properties of the landscape. Over the lifetime of the mission we plan to acquire stereo data for the entire land surface of Earth.
