Description
THIS DATASET CAN ONLY BE USED ON CAMPUS. World Cloud Free Earth Image (On Campus Access Only) is an ESRI .lyr file referencing a raster theme providing a true-color cloud-free view of the earth produced by mosaicking hundreds of individual 2001 NASA Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) satellite images. These satellites orbit the earth at an altitude of 700 km (435 miles). The image has a cell size of one square kilometer (0.386 sq. mi.) at the equator. The image was enhanced with shaded relief imagery derived from the USGS GTOPO30 digital elevation data. ESRI georeferenced these data to a real-world coordinate system.
