Caption: World land cover, global map. This cylindrical map projection of the Earth shows magnified examples of the terrain and land cover. These include conifer trees symbolising northern forests, tropical trees for rainforests and desert palms, large mountains for the world's major mountain ranges, and wide, branching waterways for the world's major rivers. Colour indicates terrain, with deserts, ice fields, alpine mountains, and forests and grasslands shown in their natural colours. The map overlaps slightly at the eastern and western edges to ensure that all areas are shown in their full geographical context.
