Where in the World is this GigaPan? HA!

Tiny changes in the orientation of the satellite
relative to the Earth may account for the other
aberrations. The orbit is good, but not perfect.

I think the images in different wavelengths are
taken sequentially (a bottleneck in writing data)
and the clouds move between the time two images
are taken. You will notice that the aberration is
greater for clouds than for land.

Cool image! But what's the cause of the
mis-alignment of colors? the picture would look a
lot sharper if the color channels were better

How do you send a camera into orbit but not be
able to align the color layers? The CA, it hurts!

How to download this full-size image?

@skogenik: Actually, that is Sri Lanka. It's
near the Maldives, but not actually part of them.

re: What is this; That is the main pear shaped
island of the Maldives.

LOL. If you zoom in and then out this image looks
like tectonic drift.
