The Daily Overview posts one stunning birds-eye-view photo, taken from all over the planet, each day. Their Mission Statement:
Many people have asked us what is the purpose of Daily Overview. Here’s our answer:
Unless you spend most of your time in an airplane, your everyday perspective is limited to the surface of the earth, and specifically to your line of sight. From down here it’s impossible to fully appreciate the beauty and intricacy of the things we’ve constructed, the sheer complexity of the systems we’ve developed, or the devastating impact that we’ve had on our planet. We’ve made a decision that the majority of the images we capture will focus on this unnatural world, shining a light on the areas where our human activity – for better or worse – has shaped the landscape.
Unbelievably advanced technology has given us the newfound ability to look down at the place where we live. We think there is bountiful beauty and opportunity in the images shot from the Overview vantage point. And ultimately, we feel that this project can inspire fresh perspective about our planet and the way that we treat it. We hope you do as well.
We will continue to publish one Overview each day. Look down with us by…
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
