Papua, Irian Jaya, West Papua
This map brings together 27 individual Landsat-7 images which are available for Papua.
Most Landsat-7 images are expensive (US $600), but once an individual image has been purchased for the full-cost,
that image is then available for future purchase for only US $50
(www.landsat.org). To see which Landsat-7 images of Papua are available
for US $50, point to an area with your mouse (click to view a low resolution Landsat-7 image).

"The Landsat Project is the longest-running enterprise for the acquisition of moderate resolution imagery of the
earth from space. The Landsat-1 satellite was launched in 1972; the most recent, Landsat-7, was launched in 1999.
The instruments on the Landsat satellites have acquired millions of images. These images form a unique resource
for applications in agriculture, geology, forestry, regional planning, education, mapping, and global change
research." For information about the uses, interpretation and technical specifications of Landsat-7 imagery, refer
to the USGS Landsat Project website (http://landsat7.usgs.gov).
