Your Imagery Work Break – 2019 British Open

We love maps.

We love imagery.

We love work breaks.

We hope you like them as well!

Spring is right around the corner here in the Northern Hemisphere as March is upon us! In celebration of the coming warmer weather, get outside and enjoy a brisk late-winter walk. But before you head out, take a gander at this panchromatic image collected by the 50-centimeter panchromatic satellite, WorldView-1, over the Dunluce Links course at the Royal Portrush Golf Club in Portrush, United Kingdom. We have covered the Open Championship several times in this series, including a WorldView-2 image from 2016 and a GeoEye-1 image from 2018, so we will spare you the details about this historic golf event. The image here was collected on July 20th at 14:22:42 local time which was Round 3 of the Open, often referred to as moving day. By this time, about two-thirds of the field would have teed off already in the 148th Open where Shane Lowry of the Republic of Ireland held a commanding six stroke lead by day’s end. Lowry went on to win the PGA major by the same six strokes over runner-up Tommy Fleetwood of Northern Ireland.

Have a great rest of your workday!
