Using archived satellite imagery from the Landsat programme and detailed digital terrain data, we can produce 3D landscape views of large areas for most of the Earth's land surface. This example shows the Swiss Alps, looking along the valley of the River Rhone from the west, part of a double-page spread for a book.

Data source : Landsat TM 30 metre image mosaic, SRTM3 90 metre digital elevation
