Markus and Helena,

This looks like the start of a great list of datasets. A few other layers
that might be useful are:

- Topo sheets (1:24,000 and possibly coarser scale as well)
- More varied satellite imagery to show samples or different resolutions
(Russian doll concept)
- An example of multi-band data supplied as individual bands (to illustrate
how to combine individual bands)

- Contours from topo sheets so they can be compared to those derived from

All the best,
