The Bright Earth e-Atlas Basemap dataset collection is a satellite-derived global map of the world at a 1:1M scale for
most of the world and 1:200k scale for Australia. This map was inspired by Natural Earth II (NEII) and NASA's Blue Marble
Next Generation (BMNG) imagery.
Its aim was to provide a basemap similar to NEII but with a higher resolution (~10x).
This basemaps is derived from the following datasets: Blue Marble Next Generation 2004-04 (NASA), VMap0 coastline, Coast100k
2004 Australian coastline (GeoScience Australia), SRTM30 Plus v8.0 (UCSD) hillshading, Natural Earth Vector 10m bathymetry
and coastline v2.0 (NE), gbr100 hillshading (JCU).
This dataset (World_Bright-Earth-e-Atlas-basemap) contains all the files required to setup the Bright Earth e-Atlas basemap
in a GeoServer. All the data files are stored in GeoTiffs or shapefiles and so can also be loaded into ArcMap, however no
styling has been included for this purpose.
