We love maps.

We love imagery.

We love work breaks.

We hope you like them as well!

Fall is in full swing and winter is coming quick, so get outside while you do not need a thick jacket to enjoy the sunny day. But before you head on that break, check out this WorldView-2 image collected over the 2016 British Open on July 14, 2016 at about 1:11 PM. This image was collected at a high off-nadir (or tilt) so we re-sampled the native 50-centimeter (cm) resolution to 73-cm. The four-day tournament is one of four yearly PGA majors, and is often considered the most hallowed. The 2016 version of The Open was held from July 14 to July 17th at Royal Troon Golf Club in Ayrshire, Scotland. Henrick Stenson won the event – do you think he is around the grandstands featured in this WorldView-2 image?

Have a great rest of your workday!
