Earth has a stunning variety of landscapes. The colors, patterns, textures, and shapes all make for intriguing artwork as seen from the perspective of space.
Earth As Art shows not only what satellites capture in the visible wavelengths of light you and I can see, but also what’s hiding in the invisible wavelengths that Landsat sensors can detect in the infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Those combinations can bring out much more scientific value, but also can produce imagery of breathtaking beauty.
Earth As Art 6 even includes images from U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), commonly known as drones. Sensors attached to a UAS also capture visible and infrared light and have proven their value at monitoring change over time alongside their spaceborne partners. Besides, their images look great, too. Enjoy the latest from Earth As Art!
