Розробники проекту "Daily Overview" викладають в мережу світлини Землі, зроблені з висоти пташиного польоту.
Крім того, що знімки надзвичайно гарні, вони мають підштовхнути тих, хто їх переглядає, задуматися над важливістю збереження планети, йдеться у блозі "Daily Overview".
За словами творця блогу Бенджаміна Гранта, назва проекту стосується психологічного терміну "Overview effect" ("Ефект огляду"). Проект осягнув уже понад 650 тисяч людей у мережі.
"Якщо дивитися на Землю із висоти – всі об'єкти здаються маленькими, такими, що потребують збереження і захисту. На багатьох знімках помітно, як змінилися краєвиди через діяльність людини", – вважає Бенджамін.

Casablanca is the largest city in Morocco with four million residents, accounting for 11% of the entire country. Many officials report that these figure are underestimated and the total population is actually somewhere between 5 and 6 million. This recent surge has occurred because severe droughts have forced many Moroccans to move into urban areas to find new forms of work. The Cite Djemaa neighborhood, located in the southeast of the city, is seen here. /// Created by @benjaminrgrant, source imagery: @digitalglobe

Sand patterns are seen here in Salta, Argentina. Salta is situated 3780 feet above sea level in the northwest part of the country.

The black presumably occurs following volcanic activity. The white seen in this Overview is snow covering the tops of the mountains. /// Created by @micahjmarshall, source imagery: @digitalglobe
