GeoEye – Here’s how GeoEye describe themselves: “GeoEye, Inc. is a premier provider of superior satellite and aerial imagery, location information products and image processing services. Our products and services enable timely, accurate and accessible location intelligence that translates into timely and vital insights for our customers, anywhere and at any time.”
Although this sounds very corporate-y, it’s super cool to know the GeoEye uses an actual satellite to take these amazing pictures. I’d just skip right to the website’s gallery section (over 100 amazing images!) and then you’ll understand why GeoEye is so great at what it does. I’ve included two images that blew me away: Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, Africa, and the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico. I highly recommend reading the annotation accompanying each image. Click the images and you’ll get their respective page plus annotation.
