Water is blue, vegetation is green and arid areas are brown. At top, the massive land mass of Eurasia, the Earth's largest continent, dominates the hemisphere. Europe is seen at left of the vast deserts of northern Africa (upper right). North America (lower centre) lies between the Atlantic Ocean (lower right) and the vast Pacific Ocean (centre left).
