Caption: Whole Earth map based on satellite data. The land terrain is mostly vegetation (green) or arid land (brown). The polar regions are covered by snow and ice (white), though sea ice is not shown. The major geographical features include the deserts of North Africa (centre), the mountain ranges in central Asia (centre right), the Amazon rainforest in South America (lower left), and the Greenland ice cap (upper left). This cylindrical projection (specifically a Mercator projection) distorts the area of polar regions. Greenland should be about eight times smaller than South America.
