Greeings,

I am looking for a globe image similar to:

http://www.maps.com/...d=1,74&pid=3126

I need an image which can be printed to 28"x28" with fair quality.

I need this image for my Intro to Photoshop class project. It will be a one time use and not for any commercial purpose.

Can anyone point me to such a graphic?

Thanks,
-Mike

With the right land cover data, NASA blue marble for example, you could use GMT to produce a "globe' image just like that:

Interesting link, Dylan.
Unfortunately, a bit over my head!
