We love maps.
We love imagery.
We love work breaks.
We hope you like them as well!
October is one of our favorite months of the year as the weather is cool and crisp to complement the amazing colors of Fall, so you definitely need to get outside on a work break! But before you head out take a few moments to gander this 45-centimeter high-off nadir (or high-tilt angle with respect to the ground when the data was collected) WorldView-3 image of the 2019 US Open at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York. We have featured the US Open several times in the Geospatial Times, once in 2017 and once in 2018, and remarkably each time it was also a high off-nadir WorldView-3 collection. The image featured here from the 2019 US Open was collected on August 26th at approximately 11:56AM local time which would have been during a slew of First Round singles matches on both the Men’s and Women’s sides. And even more strange coincidences here, as we are drafting this article the 2021 edition of the US Open is about to kick off with two Men’s semifinal singles matches on the day’s schedule.
Have a great rest of your workday!
