World Pacific Rim Satellite Image Map
Physical World - Giclee Archive Print

This stunningly detailed satellite image map features a less common Pacific Rim view of the world. A multitude of various data sources are combined to produce this maps unique detail of the planet. Land imagery is based on data collected by NASA's MODIS satellite instrumentation in August 2004. Polar sea ice is based on a combination of MODIS data and observations made by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's AVHRR sensor (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer). This map depicts the earth during the month of August so there is little snow coverage in the northern hemisphere landmasses, although little snow is apparent in the southern hemisphere it is at its maximum extent due to it being winter in the region. Tens of thousands of the earths physical features can be clearly identified in astounding detail.

Each map is available in an archival museum quality print. This special printing process is known as Giclee (zhee-CLAY) and is commonly used to produce museum quality fine art prints. Large format digital images are printed on premium 10 mil (0.25mm) glossy photo paper, the result is a brilliant colorful image with a vivid life-like quality. Pigment based Epson UltraChrome K3 ink is used providing a lightfastness rating of up to 108 years, guaranteeing minimal noticeable fading over a very long period of time. Giclee printing is superior to traditional lithography in a number of ways: colors are brighter, lasts longer, and is a higher resolution.

Museum Quality Framed Beveled Edge Mounting

Giclee prints are also available with a museum quality beveled edge mounting option. A detailed illustration of the mounting process is shown to the right. Premium UV matte laminate is applied to the Giclee by heat and pressure in a heat press. This ensures protection against moisture, UV degradation and damage from handling. The laminated Giclee is dry mounted to 1/8" fiberboard (MDF) with a 1" frame. It is sealed under heat and pressure then finished with a taped beveled edge. The final result is a non-glare, easy to clean professional quality product suitable for public display in the worlds most prestigious museums or galleries. The surface is easily cleaned with a soft cloth and glass cleaner.
