California, USA Geographic Mosaic (GIS Coverage)
Entry ID: ES_Ca_cover

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This map is a full resolution (1.0 arc-second per pixel)
Landsat TM Mosaic of the State of California. Imagery is in a
lat/long (geographic) projection and represents a natural color
composite of TM bands 3,2,1 as R,G,B. ArcView vectors are
provided as an example of what will be possible when multiple
servers can be displayed in a single view. The future EarthSat
service will provide raster imagery on a per view basis.

The purpose of this map is to provide geodetically accurate (50
meter RMS), medium scale (1.0 arc-second) for exploitation
within a GIS environment. This imagery is suitable for primary
data collection, change analysis, and logistics planning.

Data Projection: WGS84
Pixel Resolution: 1.0 arc-seconds
This is a raster image.
