Plant life on Earth detected from space
Earthscape maps are created by digitally stitching together millions of images from research satellites equipped with special sensors that can detect plant life (MODIS). These sensors measure non-visible wavelengths of light to generate data called the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI). In essence, each map is a 36 megapixel photograph of life on Earth. Both of us bring 5 years of experience with remote sensing and geospatial data visualization for ecological research.
Scientists have used these data for decades to study the Earth. Inspired by their impressive beauty, we are bringing these images to life for the first time ever in the form of personalized, fine art quality maps. Each map is printed on the highest quality fine art paper which is made from sustainably grown bamboo. Your print is printed on demand, and inspected for perfect quality before we ship it in a rigid recyclable tube.
