EOSD (Earth Observation for Sustainable Development of Forests) Images

  • High-resolution images of Canada from "compressed tiles generated by Earthsat Corporation (circa 1990). ... The most northerly regions of Canada are truncated from this mosaic because Landsat’s orbit does not extend above 81 degrees North Latitude. The mosaic extends well into the United States." The resolution is such that roads and buildings, though not individual houses, can be seen.
