GeoSphere image of the whole Earth in a Robinson Projection with political boundaries. Colours in land areas show natural tones, sea colours give an impression of water temperatures (light blue = cool, dark blue = warm). Boundaries between countries are shown in red, and are correct as at late 1993. This image is a composite of thousands of images made by the NOAA series of weather satellites. Each image was selected for lack of cloud cover and the representation of the surface colours. The individual frames were then merged using a graphics computer.
