Description

An ultra high quality world satellite image map print available with no text labels or in a version featuring countries, national capital cities, and major bodies of water labeled.

This stunningly detailed satellite image map of the world features both land cover and bathymetric data depicted in an Oblique Mercator Projection. The parameters of this map projection have been carefully chosen so that the inevitable distortion that occurs is relegated to the oceans and to the least populated and least recognizable land masses. The result is a unique visually interesting flat map of the world that exhibits nearly no distortion in the most familiar areas, even at the poles. This version of the map has been done in a stylish portrait orientation perfectly suited to hang as an elegant piece of art in your home, office, or gallery.

A multitude of various data sources are combined to produce this maps unique detail of the planet earth. Land imagery is based on data collected by NASA's MODIS satellite instrumentation. Ocean bathymetric information is derived from the GEBCO (General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans). Antarctica imagery is from the RAMP II dataset (Radarsat Antarctic Mapping Project Elevation Model).

In amazing detail you can make out tens of thousands of the Earth's natural features such as ocean floor tectonic plate boundaries and volcanically created islands. International borders are represented in red outlines. The map also features a 15° latitude/longitude grid.

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. Printed on Archive Paper, Luster Photo Paper, Matte Canvas or Metal.

Map print ships rolled up in a durable cardboard tube. Frame is not included.
