New High Resolution Earth View

ESA (European Space Agency) has presented a new global portrait taken from space, detailing Earth’s land cover with a resolution never before obtained.

Although Earth’s land cover has been charted from space before, these new pictures have a resolution 10 times sharper than any of its predecessors.

The GlobCover system is a great step forward in our capacities to automatically produce new global land cover products with a finer resolution and a more detailed thematic content than ever achieved in the past," Frédéric Achard of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) said.
