  1. Like the others said, a mosaic is an image made up of little dots, or tiles or even other pictures.

    However, in astronomy, microscopy and various other sciences, it is a term used to describe images that have been combined to form a larger image.

    To explain that, it really needs pictures. So I’ve written a separate article to explain it to you. Here’s the link: http://kaira.sgo.fi/2011/06/what-is-mosaic-image.html
