New map shows 99 percent of Earth's terrain

The American space organization and Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry have released a new digital topographic map of Earth that accurately portray more of our planet than ever previous to.
The new map consists of 1.3 million images taken by Nasa's Terra satellite that have been pieced together to form a unified picture of the planet. The images were taken by a Japanese imaging instrument called the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer.
