Daily overview is a project that brings you breathtaking images (overviews) of earth from above. Everyday, a new satellite image is posted focusing on the places and moments where human activity—for better or for worse—has shaped the landscape.
The project was inspired, and derives its name, from an idea known as the Overview Effect:
“The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, is an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of Earth and mankind’s place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.”
