USA texture map (4114)
Planetary Visions' Satellite Imagemap of the USA covers the entire country in natural colour at a pixel size of 250 metres. We have selected the best images from NASA's archive of moderate resolution satellite data to construct a cloud-free texture map showing the USA, including Alaska and Hawaii, as well as southern Canada and northern Mexico.
Coverage : 59 - 135 degrees West, 22 - 55 degrees North
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 the USA is suitable for a range of computer graphics, GIS and publishing applications. Details such as urban areas, fields, roads, bridges and underwater sandbanks 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
