Map of the North American Continent:The geographic continent of North America includes the countries of Central America, Mexico, the United States, Canada, Greenland, and the islands of the Caribbean region.

State and province boundaries are provided in the United States and Canada, respectively.
Satellite Image of the North American Continent:This illustration is a composite satellite view of North America presented as an orthographic projection centered at 40 degrees north latitude and 95 degrees west longitude. It was created in 2002 as part of NASA's "Blue Marble" series. It is a reprojected and cropped portion of the most detailed true-color image of the entire Earth that had been created at that time. Creators of the Blue Marble images stitched together months of satellite-based views of Earth until they came up with a nearly cloud-free, true-color mosaic.
Most of the data used to prepare this image came from NASA's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer which was flying at an altitude of over 700 kilometers above Earth's surface onboard the Terra Satellite between June and September 2001. Topographic shading was added using the GTOPO30 elevation data set compiled by the United States Geological Survey. You can learn more about this image and obtain higher resolution copies at other projections from NASA's Visible Earth catalog.
