New Zealand texture map (4112)
The Planetary Visions Satellite Imagemap of the World now covers New Zealand at a pixel size of 250 metres. We have selected the best images from NASA's archive of MODIS data and constructed a cloud-free mosaic showing New Zealand in considerable detail.
Coverage: 160 - 180 degrees East, 30 - 50 degrees South
Pixel size: approx 250 metres (8 arc seconds), 500 metres (16 arcsec), or 1km (32 arcsec)
Enhanced by hill shading and a coastline mask, our 250 metre Satellite Imagemap of New Zealand is suitable for a range of computer graphics, GIS and publishing applications. Details such as urban areas, fields, roads and bridges may be seen.
In print, the image supports mapping up to a scale of 1:750,000 at 300dpi. For 3D graphics, a pixel size of 250 metres makes it ideal as a texture map draped over 1km Digital Terrain
data. Colouring is compatible with our global 1km Satellite Imagemap
High-resolution images using the 250m Satellite Imagemap are available in our Image Library
