Overview: How We Change The Earth

Civilization is both astonishing and astonishingly various when viewed from slightly above. Not so far above as to be lost in planetary context, but just high enough to see a fascinating thing whole, entire, intensely peculiar and informative. The glory is in the high-resolution details, in the perpetually stunning aerial perspective, and in the shocking patterns and information that can surprisingly emerge.

Revel in a host of such images and the understanding that emerges from them with Benjamin Grant '07, co-author of the book Overview Timelapse: How We Change the Earth and the founder of the Instagram project “Daily Overview.”
