Earth Art pt. II


wishes you a happy

Earth Day

Earth Day

My previous blog post in March, dubbed Earth Art with Google Maps—about finding and showing interesting and artful satellite views of remote areas of our blue planet—had an very overwhelming response. Literally thousands of clicks from interested people made it clear that this is something that a lot of people find fascinating. And now that it’s Earth Day, and what better time to stop and take yet another look at some of the wonders our nature can create?

Move your mouse over any map to see the location.

Don’t worry—you can scroll through the page freely without accidentally zooming.

“Earth Art” is about showing beautiful natural art from above by utilizing Google Maps to look at incredibly unusual landscapes in places with extreme climate. And, because of technology, you don’t even have to leave your seat.

Below are 37 perplexing satellite views from all around the globe; you can drag and pan around or zoom to explore even more from the highlighted area.

So, once again, follow me to where there’s no Street View and enjoy even more abstract art of nature seen from above! Happy Earth Day!

Truly an awesome collection of the natural green earth. It makes you truly appreciate the small things in life that make up the greater picture.

Beautiful pictures andy. I still couldn't figure out the sahara , north tchad. It appears in the picture as if there is a sand storm over the mountains but on close up it is something else not sure what. New guinea picture is beautiful as well. Well done andy. Which pictures do we expect next.
