Earth Exploration Toolbook: Annotating Change in Satellite Images
This chapter walks users through a technique for documenting change in before-and-after sets of satellite images. The technique can be used for any set of time-series images that are spatially registered to show the exact same area at the same scale.
This poster features details of the August 21, 2017, solar eclipse including the path of totality, the percentages of coverage outside the path of totality, and a timeline as it moves across the U.S. from Oregon to South Carolina.
