Views of the Earth

I love looking at the images on Views of the Earth: Artificial Images of Our Real Planet, where Christoph Hormann has taken satellite images and reprocessed them. The end results are astonishing: views from a height, on cloudless days, that take into account the Earth’s curvature, particularly in high-altitude images. For each image, Christoph provides coordinates, altitudes and viewing angles; it’s hard to remember that these aren’t real views from space, but processed from data. Via Cartography and Kartentisch.
