We love maps.

We love imagery.

We love work breaks.

We hope you like them as well!

It’s been a super long month of nothing but work, so go reward yourself with a nice long break! But before you head out, take a few minutes to gander this 50-centimeter WorldView-2 image collected over the 2016 Australian Open on January 26, 2016 at 11:28AM local time – it looks like there were a full suite of matches this day too. The Australian Open is the first of tennis’ four yearly Grand Slams. The event is held in January at Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Australia. The 2016 edition stretched from January 18th to the 31st with more than 700,000 visitors visiting the park’s 25 tennis courts. Novak Djokovic won the tournament on the Men’s Single side while Angelique Kerber upset heavily favored Serena Williams on the Women’s Single side. But perhaps the biggest story of the 2016 Australian Open was Maria Sharapova’s stunning failure of a routine drug test and then her admission to taking a banned substance.

Have a great rest of your workday! J
