Caption: The World shown in rectangular projection centred on the prime (Greenwich) meridian. This image is a combination of hundreds of images acquired by NOAA weather satellites from orbits some 820 km above Earth. Each frame has a resolution of 1 kilometre. The mosaic of frames was then combined with a high- resolution digital elevation model. To emphasise relief features, the elevation model was stretched by a factor of two, and simulated solar illumination added.Restrictions:
