We love maps.

We love imagery.

We love work breaks.

We hope you like them as well!

Christmas is right around the corner, are there any fun lights to check out by your office? If so, go check them out when it’s dark, if not, still go take a break sometime soon! Either way, before you take that break, check out this 30-centimeter WorldView-3 image collected on December 19, 2016 over the site of the National Christmas Tree planted in Washington. The current National Tree, a Colorado Spruce, was planted in 2012 to replace the 2011 version which died of transplant shock. Each year, the President of the United States lights the National Tree, with the 2016 event marking the 94th lighting. First started in 1923 by President Calvin Coolidge, this year’s event takes place on November 30, 2017 in President’s Park South, also referred to as the Ellipse.

Have a great rest of your workday!
