Caption

Whole Earth map. True-colour satellite map of the Earth's land cover and ocean floor topography. The map uses the Robinson 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. Robinson maps project the spherical surface of the Earth onto a pseudocylindrical surface. The vertical lines of longitude increasingly curve to each end of the map. This reduces the distortions of mapping the surface of a sphere onto a flat surface.
