Title: "ESRI: World with Ice" (2004)
 
Description: World with Ice represents a true color cloud-free view of the Earth specially processed to depict areas of the Earth covered with ice. Mosaicking hundreds of individual 2001 NASA Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) satellite images produced this image. For polar sea ice areas MODIS observations were combined with observations of Antarctica made by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR). The MODIS satellites orbit the Earth at an altitude of 700 km (455 miles). The image has a cell size of 1 kilometer (.386 sq. mi.) at the equator. The image was enhanced with shaded relief imagery, derived from the USGS GTOPO30 digital elevation data. ESRI georeferenced these data to a real world coordinate system. World with Ice provides an informational and educational view of the ice on our planet.
