File:Mulanje ETM 26may02.jpg


Description Composite image of w:Mount Mulanje, Malawi. The image was created by merging imagery from the Landsat 7 satellite’s Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) instrument with elevation data from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM). This true-colour image was created by combining the red, green, and blue wavelengths (ETM+ bands 3, 2, and 1). The resulting image was then draped over a visualization of the SRTM data with no vertical exaggeration. The ETM+ scene was acquired on May 26, 2002, while the elevation data were collected by the STRM instrument during its flight on the Space Shuttle Endeavour in February 2000.
