Mosaic of Antarctica

| |

NASA has stitched together over a thousand satellite images to create the most detailed map ever of Antarctica.  The main LIMA site contains information about Antarctica including fact sheets, detail on how LIMA is being used to study and understand the continent and access to a virtual tour of Antarctica. 

A map server hosted on the USGS site allows visitors to view and download the Natural-Color, Pan-Sharpened Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA), order products from the USGS relating to Antarctica and find further GIS data resources for the continent.
