Caption

Whole Earth map. True-colour satellite map of the Earth's land cover and ocean floor topography. The map uses the Mercator projection and is centred around the Greenwich Meridian with North at top. Water is blue, vegetation is green, arid areas are brown and snow and ice are white. Mercator maps project the spherical surface of the Earth onto a cylindrical surface (which is unrolled to form the map). Areas are increasingly distorted when moving from the equator to the poles. Greenland should be about eight times smaller than South America.
