A selection of very high resolution images.
GeoGratis, an initiative of the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing , is a web and file transfer protocol (ftp) site that distributes geospatial data of Canada. Here you can find vector mapping data available in scales ranging from 1:50 000 to 1:30 000 000, plus Radarsat, Landsat 5TM and Landsat 7 ETM+ coverage of Canada.
Google Earth
Landsat image gallery
A collection of Landsat images, including "Earth as Art" Landsat 7 scenes created for aesthetic purposes rather than for scientific interpretation. See also the Landsat.org Image Gallery.
