    Link Earth From Above comes to NYC

    Aiming to inspire people to think globally about sustainable living, Arthus-Bertrand has been photographing unique views of our planet, seen from the sky, since 1994
    Here is the link to an article with a bunch of stupendous photos for inspiring budding cartographers:

    I particularly like numbers 3, 6, 8, 11, 16, 17 (ok most of them...) and check out 19 and 22 for unique village inspirations!

    (Plus they have links to google maps for each one!)

    Wow... truly unique and wondrous. Now I'm going to have to watch Baraka when I get home again.
    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.

    These were outside the Natural History museum in London for a while. They are stunning - especially in real life as the images are huge. Definitely go and see them if you get the chance.

    Ah, yes! Some of the pictures looked familair to me. I remember them from London, the Natural History Museum (outside). Also I think I have seen the same pictures in Copenhagen when I visited there.

    I have his book - its a real mighty tome but has the most amazing photos in it. I have the one with the big heart made of cleared forest as the cover. He must have great fun doing his job.
