La Nasa propone immagini da satellite del progetto Image of Change improntate ai cambiamenti ambientali avvenuti in vari periodi. Le localizzazioni si possono visualizzare su mappa (per l’Italia c’è solo una criptica immagine relativa all’inquinamento luminoso di Milano) oppure tramite gallery fotografica (eventulmente filtrandole per argomento: all, cities, ice…). Ci sono tre modi per visualizzare le foto (curtain, toggle, 2-up), si può approfondire l’argomento e scaricare le immagini.
