An atlas using satellite data to show the Earth as it really is
ESA and Geospace launched an educational resource in the form of the ESA School Atlas. As a complement to the more conventional atlas, this represents an evolutionary leap in teaching resources, using satellite data to show the Earth as it really is.
The Atlas is built on satellite imagery and is packed with the most current and visually stunning results of Earth Observation. It displays in a clear and novel way all the fundamental processes affecting the Earth system, and demonstrates the techniques of the future for monitoring and understanding our planet.
This Educational resource is an invaluable tool for the classroom, finally providing a very affordable exposure to costly satellite imagery from a wide variety of sensors. Wide swath imagery providing continental and global overview is included, together with satellite imagery of the highest spatial resolution available today, with images of 0.6 m resolution.
