Atlas mountains, Morocco, 3D computer image, viewed at an altitude of 19 kilometres. At centre is Jbel Toubkal, the tallest peak with a height of 4,167 metres. 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.
