New Satellite View of Antarctica

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), have teamed to create the LANDSAT Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA). Lima is the first major out come of the International Polar Year (IPY 2007-2008). LIMA supports research and encourages new projects that help the general public visualize environmental change in Antarctic.

LIMA was created from more than 1,000 Landsat ETM+ scenes. Researchers and the public alike have free access to LIMA and all component Landsat scenes. With the Web viewer one can pan across the continent or zoom in to see amazingly detailed Natural-Color images.
