Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica Graphic

This large resolution graphic was created to display a 10 foot by 7 foot exhibition for the Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA) project at the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting (ATCM) in Baltimore, Maryland on April 16-17, 2009. This meeting marks the 50th Anniversary of the Antarctic Treaty. After this meeting, the printed image will be displayed in building 33 of Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

The Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA) is a data product funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and jointly produced by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The LIMA data shown here uses the pan-chromatic band and has a resolution of 15 meters per pixel. The LandSat satellite does not fly over the South Pole so the hole has been filled with data from NASA's MODIS Mosaic of Antarctica (MOA).
