World Satellite Image Map - Pacific CenteredTopography & Cloud Cover - Giclee Archive Print
A stunning "Pacific Rim view" of Planet Earth compiled from a wide array of NASA satellite-based observations. This high quality giclee print of the entire Earth consists of a seamless true-color mosaic of satellite data including: land surface, oceans, and clouds. Natural cloud cover provides a perspective of the Earth as it appears from space. Clouds show frontal systems, storms, and tropical thunderheads. This view of the world is displayed in a Geographic projection with the central meridian at 150° E.
A multitude of data sources were combined to produce this unique view of the Earth including land imagery with a spatial resolution of 500 meters based on NASA's MODIS instrumentation. Antarctica was compiled from the RAMP (Radarsat Antarctic Mapping Project) AMM-1 SAR image mosaic and RAMP digital elevation model, both version 2. Topographic Shaded-relief is based on NASA SRTM elevation dataset. The cloud overlay is a composite of two days of imagery collected in visible light wavelengths and a third day of thermal infra-red imagery over the poles.
This high quality giclee print map is available in multiple sizes ready for framing or with museum quality beveled edge frame plaque 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.
