The Earth’s Heartbeat as Seen from Space

Using NASA’s latest high-resolution satellite imagery of Earth, Designer, cartographer, and dataviz expert John Nelson has created a pair of captivating animations that track seasonal transformations on Earth.

"I downloaded the 12 cloud-free satellite imagery mosaics of Earth at each month of the year," he explains, "wrapped them into some fun projections, then stitched them together into a couple animated gifs." The end result is a pulsing visualization he calls "A Breathing Earth”.
