This detailed satellite image map of the United States combines high resolution NASA satellite imagery, 3-D shaded relief, and ocean floor bathymetry resulting in a stunning geographic presentation. The map is labeled with the following political and physical features :
The map is derived from a composite of satellite imagery with a spatial resolution of 500 meters. A multitude of data sources were combined to produce this unique view of the U.S. including: land imagery based on NASA's MODIS instrumentation (August 2004), ocean bathymetric information from the GEBCO (General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans). Shaded relief is based on NASA SRTM elevation data. A Lambert Conformal Conic projection is used for this map.
