Um, whats the point?
You can get real pictures from Nasa, of for that matter Google Earth, of the whole planet.
These artificial images are pretty but sanitised.

The image is amazing!

I agree with a former emailer that seeing it makes one feel homesick.
I have made my home in Minnesota, U.S.A. but that image brings out so many emotions, precious memories of my childhood growing up in N.Z.
I think it's because the image looks as though you are floating above it, like you are really there, something a flat map could never do.

Shouldn't there be some cities/towns/roads visible in this view? Come to think of it, the cities appear to be missing in all the other images I have seen on this site.

As a kiwi living in Australia I have to say I'm highly impressed with the New Zealand imagery. It's spot on and I can distinguish places I've been and grew up in. Makes me a bit homesick really! Welldone!
