Lewis and Clark
Space-Age Atlas

The Lewis and Clark journey (1803-06) was the first great expedition to chart and discover the western lands of the United States. It was also the last great pre-industrial journey in the United States. The travel was accomplished entirely with human, animal, and natural power to move the Corps of Discovery and their baggage across the continent and back.

The latest space-age techniques allow mapping and visualization of the Earth's surface in ways the were merely science fiction only a few decades ago. From vantage points a few 100 feet above the ground to 100s of miles in space, we can now look down upon the Earth by means of remote sensing. The purpose of this atlas is to portray, through striking visual images and brief explanations, the modern environments of the lower Missouri River along which the Corps of Discovery passed.
