South America Satellite Image MapEnhanced Physical - Giclee Archive Print
This is an enhanced satellite image map of South America presented in a Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area projection. Topography and hydrology are depicted in exceptional detail. This view is derived from surface observation data collected with NASA's MODIS satellite instrumentation in June through December. It is cloud free, created from multiple mosaics of satellite images, utilizing two visual bands and three thermal bands. The land cover image has been combined with high resolution hydrology and shaded relief elevation data to produce a final image resulting in easy to discern natural features such as rivers, mountains, and forests. Ocean bathymetry is based on the GEBCO (General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans) data sets. The source resolution of this map is 30 arc-seconds (1 pixel per km at the equator). Political borders are demarcated using red outlines. There is also a 15° degree latitude, longitude grid. An excellent map for those interested in understanding the physical geography of South America.
Map is also available with countries & capital cities labeled. Option available during checkout.
This high quality giclee print map is available in multiple sizes ready for framing or with museum quality beveled edge frame mounting.
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. The result is an exquisitely detailed print of substantially higher quality than a standard map poster.
Giclee Print Features:
Museum quality beveled edge plaque mounting is available for our satellite image map giclee prints.
