Description: Most textures here are based on data from the NASA project Blue Marble, but have been modified in various ways to enhance colors etc. The original Blue Marble data had a resolution of 42K (43200x21600), but the improved dataset "Blue Marble Next Generation" was made available in 2005, offering a resolution of 86400x43200 and better quality in many details. Note that a 64K texture made from the original dataset has less detail than one made from the "Next Generation" dataset.
