ASTER Oahu Flythrough
This flyover of the Hawaiian island of Oahu was made by draping January 13, 2010 image data from the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission Radiometer (ASTER) instrument on NASA's Terra spacecraft over new ASTER Version 2 digital elevation data.
The visualization begins over Honolulu, then moves northwest over Ohau's central valley, looking towards the northeast and the Ko'olau mountains. Reaching the north shore, it turns to the southeast and views the windward and east sides of Oahu, home to Kane'ohe and Kailua Bays and numerous small offshore islands.
Reaching the southeast top of Oahu, we fly over Hanauma Bay and continue past Diamond Head crater, Waikiki Beach and Honolulu. The video ends with a flyover of Pearl Harbor.
