This presentation asks the audience to consider planet Earth as a work of natural art based on a collection of images taken by remote sensing, Earth-orbiting satellites. Scenes include cities for scale, river deltas, lakes, mountains, volcanoes, glaciers, clouds, deserts, and sediment flows.
The presentation begins with a brief overview of remote sensing and the image processing techniques used to create the images shown in the presentation. All images used in the program were processed by the presenter. An example image is shown below.
