Service Description: The satellite view with shaded relief map service is a 100-meter resolution simulated natural color image of the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, with relief shading added to accentuate terrain features. Vegetation is generally green, with forests in darker green and grasslands or shrublands in lighter green. Areas of high reflectance, including urban areas, rock, and dry bare soil, are shown in shades of tan and pink. Very bright areas, such as snow and ice, are light blue. The image was produced by combining a mosaic of Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) imagery from the Landsat 4 and Landsat 5 satellites with shaded relief generated from 100-meter elevation data extracted from the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP), formerly called the National Elevation Dataset (NED). The 3DEP is a raster product assembled by the U.S. Geological Survey, designed to provide national elevation data in a seamless form with a consistent datum, elevation unit, and projection. Data corrections made in the 3DEP assembly process minimize artifacts, permit edge matching, and fill sliver areas of missing data. More information on 3DEP can be found at https://nationalmap.gov/3DEP/.
