North American Landscapes includes more than 90 locations around the USA and Canada. Each location can be studied using two viewing methods;
Stereo View and Single Image View.
Stereo View, enables students to visualise vertical aerial photographs of the selected location in true 3D at their desktop
using the ScreenScope. More than 90 stereo pairs of black and white and color aerial photographs obtained from various government agencies in the U.S. and Canada. It contains geologic features from all of the Physiographic provinces. The collection includes standard aerial photographs (scale 1 in = 1 mile) plus special low altitude and high altitude photographs flown for specific geologic and geographic missions. There are maps for most of the locations.

Black and white and color aerial photographs as well as colour Landsat images, radar images, color digital shaded relief maps and high altitude color infrared photos are included. Each image contains a set of exercises for the student. There is also a printable teacher's supplement with locations, topographic and geologic map references and the features illustrated on each image. Features of the Single Image View include:. |
- An overlay grid for both the aerial photograph and map.
