The mesmerizing flatness seen from this vantage point, the surprising comfort of systematic organization on a massive scale, or the vibrant colors that we capture will hopefully turn your head. However, once we have that attention, we hope you will go beyond the aesthetics, contemplate just exactly what it is that you're seeing, and consider what that means for our planet.

So in the spirit of contemplating just what it is I'm seeing, I looked up where they source their images. It looks like Digital Globe is the vendor. Anyone know anything about them? So far, I've learned that they can apparently help you find fish, and fast.

Thank you for posting this.
