Guided Tour of LIMA Flyover

In 2007, more than 1100 Landsat 7 images were used to create the first ever, high-resolution, true color map of Antarctica.The Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica is a virtually cloud-free, 3-D view of Antarctica's frozen landscape produced by NASA, working with the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Geological Survey and the British Antarctic Survey.. Visualizers stitched together Landsat 7 satellite imagery acquired in 1999 and 2001 with a digital elevation model and field data measurements.
