I for one welcome our new feline overlords.

The Eastern Hemisphere

Eastern Hemisphere - Blue Marble 2012

The Blue Marble 2012 photo that we told you about last week, had an amazing reception with more than 3.2 million views to date. That’s why NASA Goddard Photo and Video decided to create another Blue Marble 2012 view, this time showing the Eastern Hemisphere.

Blue Marble 2012 - "How To"“The new image is a composite of six separate orbits taken on January 23, 2012 by the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite. Both of these new ‘Blue Marble’ images are images taken by a new instrument flying aboard Suomi NPP, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS).” NASA describes in detail how the Blue Marble photos are created and shares more background information in this “How To” image uploaded alongside the new view.

Even topping the size of the previous view of Earth, NASA has uploaded the 132.25 Megapixel version to Flickr. From the large size you can click through to see the original 11500 x 11500 image on Flickr.

Stuck on Earth iPad app

The Stuck on Earth iPad app from long time Flickr member Stuck in Customs, (a.k.a. Trey Ratcliff) is a great example of what we love to see people doing with the Flickr API and the wealth of geotagged photos on Flickr.

The app lets you explore the world through photos on Flickr. Just zoom into any location and photos taken there will pop up on the screen. Trey designed it for photographers and travelers (i.e. You!) to help plan what you might want to see and photograph when wandering the world.

The app is also built around the Stuck on Earth Community group that Trey has fostered here on Flickr. Members of the group submit photos and curated Top 50 lists around for all kinds of themes like Top 50 Airports and Top 50 Capital Cities. These are then incorporated into the app. You can filter these by category like architecture, entertainment, secret spots, etc. Being able to browse these curated lists is yet another great way the app lets you explore the world through Flickr photos guided by members of the Flickr and Stuck on Earth communities.

So if you’re a traveler or photographer check out the app, it’s free!
