We love work breaks.

We hope you like them as well!

I know you are thinking of spring already, but you have a bit to go until we are there! So in the meantime, keep daydreaming of warm days on your next work break; but before you leave your desk, check out this image of Olympic Park at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics. Held from August 5th to the 21st, the 31st Summer Games were predicted to be a disaster by many, but in the end the event went off without many hitches – well perhaps other than Ryan Lochte’s run in with the law! Olympic Park was considered the heart of the 2016 games where 16 events were held. Located in the Barra region of western Rio, Olympic Park spreads over 1.18 million square meters of land. The WorldView-3 imagery featured here was collected on August 17, 2016 at a high off-nadir or tilt to the ground which creates a bird’s eye view of Olympic Park at about 58-centimeter resolution. Check out all of the people you can see walking around the promenade – very cool!

Have a great rest of your workday!
