A new perspective of how we change the Earth
Overview uses satellite and aerial imagery to demonstrate how human activity and natural forces shape our Earth. This perspective provides a powerful look at the planet where we live and the civilization we are creating. Through our Imagery, Shop, and Collaborations we aim to inspire the Overview Effect.
The Venetian Islands are a chain of six manmade islands in Miami Beach, Florida. Rivo Alto Island (left), Di Lido Island (center), and Marino Island (right) are pictured here.
