North Dakota From Space

The image is a simulated natural color rendition showing how North Dakota would appear to the naked eye from orbit. This view of North Dakota from space was acquired by the Landsat 7 satellite between July 1999 and September 2002. The addition of digital terrain information emphasizes the perception of depth by adding shadows in areas of rugged terrain such as the badlands of western North Dakota. This satellite image mosaic was provided by the U.S. Geological Survey, Earth Resources Observations Systems (EROS) Data Center in Sioux Falls, SD. This image is brought to you courtesy of the Northern Great Plains Center for People and the Environment at the University of North Dakota and it is affiliated research and educational organizations, the Upper Midwest Aerospace Consortium (UMAC) and the graduate program in Earth System Science and Policy. The satellite circles the Earth at an altitude of approximately 438 miles (705 kilometers) in a nearly pole-to-pole (98-degree inclination) orbit and crosses the equator traveling north to south at about 10 a.m. local time each orbit.
