Contained within the Atlas of Canada's Various Map Series, 1965 to 2006, is is the first of a planned series of regional satellite image maps of all of Canada. It was one of the first satellite image maps to combine imagery and other map components such as boundaries, roads, railways and place names. The imagery is a composite of many images from the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) satellites. The imagery was captured between August 11 to 20, 1990 to obtain cloud-free coverage. This was the only map in this planned series that was produced.
