The 2023 Satellite Image Calendar "Taiwan's Allies from Above" Was Published

Posted on: 2022-12-07    


Taiwan began to provide foreign aid in 1959 and has offered feedback to international communities with various comparative advantages for many years. The Center for Space and Remote Sensing Research (CSRSR) at National Central University (NCU) and the International Cooperation and Development Fund (Taiwan ICDF) collaborated to produce the 2023 satellite image calendar "Taiwan's Allies from Above." From the perspective of a very-high resolution remote sensing satellite, the calendar allows us to witness the beautiful friendship and partnership between Taiwan and our allies.

The calendar contains the images of Taiwan's 13 diplomatic allies, including three countries in Latin America: Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras, four countries in the Caribbean Sea: Haiti, the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, four countries in Asia-Pacific: the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, and Tuvalu, one country in South America: Paraguay, and one country in Africa: Eswatini.

From the perspective at a 50-centimeter ground sample distance (GSD) of the very-high resolution satellite, Pléiades, the CSRSR at NCU offers unusual visual perception. This year, via various projects of foreign aid to Taiwan's diplomatic allies, the CSRSR collaborated with the Taiwan ICDF for the first time to help solve problems in fields including food security, economic development, public hygiene, and medical care. Hand in hand, Taiwan and our diplomatic allies are marching toward sustainable development.
