A stunningly detailed satellite image map of the world displaying both topography and bathymetry (ocean floor relief). Created by NASA utilizing the latest techniques for turning satellite data into digital images, this is one of the most detailed and accurate satellite image maps of the world available.
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 Earth including: land imagery based on NASA's MODIS instrumentation (August 2004), ocean bathymetric information from the RAMP II (Radarsat Antarctic Mapping Project Elevation Model) and GEBCO (General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans).
Enjoy being able to make out tens of thousands of the Earth's natural features with this exquisite map on your wall. Easily point out large physical features like the Grand Canyon and Rocky Mountains, or relatively small Ayer's Rock in Australia, ocean floor tectonic plate boundaries are also clearly visible. This world map wall covering will add greater depth and visual appeal to any room you hang it in.
