We love maps.

We love imagery.

We love work breaks.

We hope you like them as well!

We are in the middle of fall so winter is right around the corner, but that’s okay, a nice brisk work break sounds ideal! Before you head out on that break however, take a few minutes to check out this extra colorful 50-centimeter GeoEye-1 image collected on May 4, 2019 over Bangkok, Thailand. In these images, you see the Grand Palace and the field where public celebrations of King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun’s coronation were held the following day. The 66-year old King Vajiralongkorn was crowned two years after the death of his father, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who was the Thai king since 1950. Adorned with a 7.3 kilogram (16 pound) gold crown, the new king is the tenth since the Kingdom of Thailand (formerly Siam) was formed. Enjoy these brilliant GeoEye-1 images and your brisk work break!

Have a great rest of your workday!
