Countless satellites orbit the earth. They constantly provide new images and insights about our planet and move it into ever new perspectives. In this presentation we will introduce you to digital image processing tools and earth observation programs and show you analogue image transfer techniques as well as the photographic noble printing process called cyanotypie. Furthermore, the focus is on the viewing of satellite images themselves.
