Earth View is a collection of beautiful landscapes, seen from space. With this update, we’re almost doubling the number of images available – 2,500 in total now – while upgrading the imagery with brighter colors and resolutions of up to 4K. The most fun way to explore the imagery is the brand new color map, which we’re especially proud of. Just move the slider to your favorite color and find stunning landscapes in that color scheme.
