Data Center Description
This is the home site of the WMS Global Mosaic, a high resolution global image mosaic of the earth, produced from more than 7500 individual Landsat7 scenes. Each scene requires more than 500MB of storage, or about one standard CD. These images have been collected during 1999-2003. The highest resolution image has a ground relative resolution of 15 meters, or 50 foot. The mosaic contains all nine spectral bands of the Landsat7 ETM+ instrument. Together with the associated Web Map Service Server, the mosaic is known as the WMS Global Mosaic.
