Landsat Image Mosaic Of Antarctica (LIMA)
Discover Antarctica in greater detail than ever before by exploring the nine versions of the Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA). Each version highlights different features of the landscape. Created from over 1,000 Landsat 7 ETM+ scenes, LIMA consists of two principle mosaics, six stretched versions and one center-filled mosaic. The map viewer displays the mosaics and Landsat scenes in polar stereographic projection using Web Map Service (WMS).
LIMA covers the entire continent except from the South Pole at 90 degrees south to 82.5 degrees south latitude, where Landsat has no coverage because of its near-polar orbit. To view a seamless image of the entire continent, choose the Center-Filled LIMA, which completes the continent with imagery from the MODIS Mosaic of Antarctica.
