Satellite image of the whole Earth centred on the Atlantic Ocean, showing South America and parts of North America, Europe and Africa. The picture is a composite created from thousands of separate images recorded by the Tiros-N series of meteorological satellites of NOAA. Each Tiros image was selected to show the characteristics of a particular region. The chosen images were compiled into a vast database using a super- computer which then generated this composite picture. The picture is one of the results of the GeoSphere Project, created by Tom Van Sant in Santa Monica, California.
