Topography - Snow Cover Giclee Archive Print

This is a unique view of all 50 states of the United States from space featuring rich topography in exquisite detail. In this view we see the extent of snow cover in the U.S. during the winter season. It is the most accurate and up to date map of its kind available to date. Featuring land imagery of the U.S. in unparalleled detail that is based on data collected by NASA's MODIS satellite instrumentation in February 2004. A tremendous amount of detail is illustrated allowing literally thousands of physical features to be clearly identified. Such renowned features as the Grand Canyon, California's great coastal range, the Sierra Nevada's and the green Appalachian Mountains are visible in detail. State and international boundaries are demarcated using red outlines. This map also features a 15 latitude, longitude grid.

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.

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.
