LIMA – Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica

Posted on Posted in Cartography, general, Remote Sensing

I’m not sure when this actually was actually first made available, but today I saw the press release about the USGS’ Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA), which was generated from over 1000 Landsat scenes of the continent. In addition, if you head to the LIMA website, you will also find links to other mapping and remote sensing data resources for Antarctica, including the Interactive Atlas of Antarctica, a web mapping platform that displays available GIS layers for Antarctica, including satellite and orthoimagery.
