Title: The Voyage of Discovery Continues: A Satellite View of the Journey of Lewis and Clark
Url: http://eros.usgs.gov/LewisandClark/
Publisher: Geological Survey (U.S.)
Description: To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark Expedition and the 125th anniversary of the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the USGS National Center for Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) has assembled a collection of satellite images that provides a contemporary view of the route that Lewis and Clark took from St. Louis, Missouri, to the Pacific Coast. The twenty-two individual images in the collection, acquired by the Enhanced Thematic Mapper-plus (ETM+) sensor carried aboard Landsat 7, provide a modern view of historically significant stops along the expedition route. Users can access the images by clicking on an interactive map that shows the expedition's entire route. Each image is accompanied by a brief metadata description that gives name, image source and acquisition date, and a description of the scene.
