EARTH AS ART is an exhibit of the natural artistry of Mother Nature when viewed by a Landsat 7 satellite.

  • About Earth as Art
  • The Earth as Art on-line gallery premiered in July 2002 and has been hugely popular. We are so glad that the beautiful satellite imagery of our planet has made such a huge impact. The original Earth as Art images were from the Landsat 7 satellite, and were created by the USGS National Center for EROS to introduce the general public to the Landsat Program, which is administered jointly by USGS and NASA. Various combinations of the eight Landsat 7 spectral bands were selected to create the vivid RGB composites featured on this site.
  • In 2003, a second set of Earth as Art images was put together - this time using images from both Landsat 7 and the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) aboard the Terra Satellite. We have incorporated these images into our on-line gallery and hope you will enjoy them as much as the first set!
