Mapping the Amazon: The Mouth of the Amazon
The Amazon rain forest is the largest tropical forest in the world. It stretches across South America from nearly ocean to ocean. No seasonal view of this territory existed until a NASA-university collaboration began mapping the Amazon - from space. Scientists listed worked as a team on Mosaicking Software and Mosaic Production.
