National Geographic’s striking satellite map of The World is a visually stunning image that makes a wonderful addition to the wall of any office or study. This detailed composite map draws from more than 500 satellite images to give one-kilometer detail and consistent representation of Earth's natural colors and terrain. Inset maps detail the biosphere, surface temperature, and the polar regions. The beauty and complexity of Earth’s landscapes, both above and below the oceans, is revealed with the Global Satellite Mosaic which was produced for National Geographic Society by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
The map is packaged in a two inch diamater clear plastic tube. The tube has a decorative label showing a thumbnail of the map with dimensions and other pertinent information.
