The Perfect Gift For Anyone That Likes To Travel!
The Voyager World Map Poster 2 is a stunning world map that features terrain modeling with 3D shading effects. This map is named after the first spacecraft to reach interstellar space.
Our Voyager 2 World Map is a view of the natural Earth (without clouds). It is created using a combination of satellites and developed entirely using numbers, measurements, and GIS software.
We use the USGS LandSat satellite to visualize the landscape on land and NOAA's bathymetry data to visualize the elevation and topography of the sea floor. The famous Space Shuttle Radiometric Topographic Mission, SRTM Data, is used to gather the elevation height for the land. With the data, we applied a hill shade to visualize the shading effects (at 3 p.m. every where on Earth). This is most visible in the the largest mountain regions around the world.
What's the difference between Voyager 1 & 2: Voyager 2 has a bold and beautiful look of the world. It displays the snow and ice using the MODIS satellite in the month of February. The Voyager 1 has a softer look and displays the elevation and landscape colors under the snow covered areas that are shown in Voyager 2.
