Switzerland from Space

Based on the first cloud-free mosaic generated with the SDC, we have prepared an A1 format poster of Switzerland. We used all Landsat 8 observations for the year 2016 to generate this image. Coordinate system: CH1903+ Projection: Oblique Mercator Images: Landsat 8 – USGS Period: 01/01 – 31/12/2016 Composite: True Color – Median
