38 North announces the launch of new 3D panoramas providing interactive, high-detail, virtual tours of key North Korean sites. Developed by Nathan J. Hunt, the first set of panoramas is focused on the mapping and reconstruction of the Sohae Satellite Launching Station (also referred to as Tongchang-ri).
This initial release offers a reconstruction of the launch pad at Sohae. Details have been added based on satellite imagery and photos of the facility. It will be updated over time as changes are detected to ensure that the reconstruction remains an up-to-date visualization.
Future releases will feature the missile assembly building and checkout areas, launch command center and motor pools.
This first phase is co-sponsored by MDAA.
