Earth View – A Google Collection of the Most Striking Landscapes Found On Earth

When visiting the Earth View site, move your mouse pointer to the top or side of the screen to make the various controls visible. These satellite landscape views make awesome wallpaper backgrounds. There is even a mode called “Leanback Mode” where it will automatically go through the thousands of landscape views as a slideshow.

Earth View is a collection of thousands of the most striking landscapes found in Google Earth. Humans have only been able to see the planet from space for the last 50 years. Yet something encoded in us long ago reacts when we see the world at this unprecedented scale. The enchanted and sometimes surreal landscapes of Earth View have the ability to elevate our minds from our tiny screens to outer space. Hopefully, this can also move us to care more deeply about our fragile planet.
