Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will launch  31 satellites on Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) shortly from Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota, near Chennai.

The PSLV will be carrying 28 satellites belonging to six countries namely the US, UK, France, Canada, Finland and South Korea, including three from India.

This will be India's 100th satellite launch in the "Cartosat-2 Series". 

The remote sensing satellite is similar in configuration to earlier satellites in the series and is intended to augment data services to the users, ISRO said.

The imagery sent by satellite will be useful for cartographic applications, urban and rural applications, coastal land use and regulation, utility management like road network monitoring, water distribution, creation of land use maps, change detection to bring out geographical and manmade features and various other Land Information System (LIS) as well as Geographical Information System (GIS) applications, ISRO said on its website.
