   The MODIS Mosaic of Greenland (MOG) Image Map (2005) is a composite image of 
   104 Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) images acquired over 
   the 2005 spring season. It provides a nearly-perfect cloud-free view of the 
   ice sheet, ice shelves, and land surfaces at a grid scale of 100 m, and an 
   estimated spatial resolution of 150 to 200 m. All land areas and islands 
   larger than a few hundred meters surrounding Greenland are included in the 
   mosaic, as well as the ice caps on Baffin Island, Devon Island, Axel Heighberg 
   Island, and Ellesmere Island.
