Caption

Himalayas, 3D computer artwork, viewed at an altitude of 2829 kilometres. This is the tallest mountain range in the world. At the lower, and left half of the image lies northern India. To the right of the centre is the Tibetan Plateau and north of this is the Taklamakan desert. This image was created by Christoph Hormann using data obtained from satellites such as Landsat and SRTM (Shuttle Radar Topography Mission). The data was processed into computer models using three-dimensional rendering software and then coloured and distorted to mimic the natural curvature of the Earth.
