    Post Hi res Earth - Blue Marble downloads

    Although Nasa has a download for the Blue Marble at a pretty high res ( I got mine when it was available at 52K x 26K ) this site has a free download for the earth at 180K x 90K or thereabouts

    Its done in tiles of 21K square. You can get a 8x4 set or a 16x8 set.

    They can sell you higher so the data exists at up to 256x128 tiles or 5M x 2.5M pixels. Thats a big image at 10 terrapixels or about a 1/3 mile long print at 300dpi heh heh...

    I've got to get me a bigger house if I want to hang that on my wall
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
    -J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)
