Caption: Whole Earth map. True-colour satellite map of the Earth's land cover and ocean floor topography. The map uses the Miller cylindrical projection and is centred around the Greenwich Meridian with North at top. Water is blue, vegetation is green, arid areas are brown and snow and ice are white. This projection improves on other methods of projection by reducing area distortion and showing the poles. However, areas are still increasingly distorted beyond their true values as you move from the equator to the poles.
