8.A. Visualizations of GLOBE

The GLOBE Web site contains a Gallery of GLOBE Images. At the time of writing this document, the gallery contains 5 arc-minute colored views of the world and (separately) for each continent. It also includes shaded-relief images, and shaded-relief images with earthquake hypocenters superimposed, for the same areas as the collection of colored views. In addition, selected smaller areas are shown as full-resolution views, of similar type. These images can be used to illustrate the character of GLOBE data (see also Hastings and Dunbar, 1998). They can also be used as base map illustrations, for anyone seeking digital images of any part of the land surface.
