We love maps.

We love imagery.

We love work breaks.

We hope you like them as well!

Wow is it November already? Sadly it is, so winter is right around the corner meaning you need to get outside now to enjoy the last vestiges of fall weather! But before you head out, take a few moments to gander these two images of a volcanic eruption on Bogoslof Island, Alaska. These 30-centimeter color WorldView-3 images were collected on May 28, 2017 on the exact day the eruption started, how lucky is that?! Two images have been added for this Your Imagery Work Break as the area covered by the smoke plume is quite massive and so is the full resolution image at just over 400 megabytes. The first image is a resampled view of the entire plume; while the second zoomed-in, full-resolution image shows the amazing vertical structure of these ash clouds – enjoy!

Have a great rest of your workday!
