An ultra high quality world satellite image map print showing cities at night time across the globe.

A stunning view of the world at night that depicts the extent and patterns of human settlements across the planet. Satellite image data derived from the NASA 2016 "Night Lights" map is the source for this clear view of how we light up the planet during the nighttime hours. City lights covering the entire earth are presented in glowing detail allowing you to easily identify urban centers across the globe. The night lights data is comprised of a global composite of nighttime observations made in 2016 using the Suomi NPP VIIRS (Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite) satellite instrumentation. NASA released this night lights data in April 2017.

This unique satellite image map is an excellent conversation piece that will look great on any wall. It serves as a spectacular visualization of the extent of the human footprint across the planet.

Each map is produced as a detailed museum quality archive print. This special printing process is known as Giclee (zhee-CLAY) and is commonly used to produce very high quality fine art prints. Printed on Archive Paper, Luster Photo Paper, Matte Canvas or Metal.

Map print ships rolled up in a durable cardboard tube. Frame is not included.
