Africa Satellite Image MapTopography & Bathymetry - Giclee Archive Print
This stunningly detailed satellite image map depicts the African continent as seen from space during the summer season. Shown in Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area projection it is the most accurate and up to date map of its kind available to date. A multitude of various data sources are combined to produce this maps unparalleled land and ocean detail of Africa. Land imagery is based on data collected by NASA's MODIS satellite instrumentation in August 2004. Ocean bathymetric information is derived from the RAMP II dataset (Radarsat Antarctic Mapping Project Elevation Model) and GEBCO (General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans. Notice the heavy extent of green in the central and western equatorial areas due to the rainy season. Literally thousands of the African continent's physical features are clearly identifiable, from Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to the Okavango Delta of Botswana. The contrast between the vast extent of lush rainforests in equatorial Africa to the arid desert regions of the north and south is clearly evident. Political boundaries are demarcated using red outlines. This map also features latitude/longitude grid at 15 degree intervals.
