United States Geographic Mosaic (GIS Coverage)
Entry ID: ES_US_cover

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This map is a Simulated natural color seamless mosaic of
portions of 445 Landsat Thematic Mapper Images. Image resolution
has been resampled down to a pixel resolution of 142.5
meters. The uncompressed digital image is just under 2 gigabytes
in size and is also available as a 58 megabyte compressed image
in MrSid format.

The purpose of this map is to provide a geodetically accurate
simulated natural color backdrop image for GIS analyses. The
imagery provides a 1990 baseline for geographic and cultural
features across the continental United States

Raster data information: Albers Equal Area Conic Projection The
mosaic may be viewed and used vi ESRI's Geographic Network free
of charge. The imagery may be purchased for $2500 for customer
storage and use in either GeoTIFF or MrSID format.
