Caption: Andes, Peru, 3D computer artwork, viewed at an altitude of 59 kilometres. The mountains (far left to far right) contain volcanoes, rivers and canyons, including the Colca Canyon (middle right), the deepest canyon in the world. The Pacific ocean is at bottom right and the Amazon basin lies just below the horizon. This image was created by Christoph Hormann using data obtained from satellites such as Landsat and SRTM (Shuttle Radar Topography Mission). The data was processed into computer models using 3-D rendering software and then coloured and distorted to mimic the natural curvature of the Earth.
