Mosaic - a portrait of the place created using typically several thousand satellite images captured throughout the year 2016, including seasonal variation visible in the imagery.  Printed on a fine semi-glossy cotton rag paper.  Available for all 50 states, DC, the five territories, and most U.S. national parks.
