Hi [redacted],

Some answers for you:

What interested you in composing this image and what does it mean to you.

I work on satellite imagery at Mapbox, so I see a lot of pictures of Earth. I’ve always been interested in the history and culture around the Whole Earth: the image of the sunlit planet floating in space. When the Himawari-8 data started coming out, I tried different things with it, and the most compelling for me was that Whole Earth – what we call a full disk image. Because you get a frame every 10 minutes, you can make a fairly smooth animation, and I wanted to show that off. We don’t get a lot of chances to think about the face of the Earth as something in motion.

As for what it means to me personally, I think of a few things.


This is my default career advice for people starting out in geo/GIS, especially remote sensing, adapted from a response to a letter in 2013.

I'm currently about to start a Geography degree at the University of [Redacted] at [Redacted] with a focus in GIS, and I've been finding that I have an interest in working with imagery. Obviously I should take Remote Sensing and other similar classes, but I'm the type of person who likes to self learn as well. So my question is this: What recommendations would you give to a student who is interested in working with imagery? Are there any self study paths that you could recommend?

I learned on my own and on the job, and there are a lot of important topics in GIS that I don’t know anything about, so I can’t give comprehensive advice. I haven’t arrived anywhere; I’m just ten minutes ahead in the convoy we’re both in. Take these recommendations critically.

Find interesting people. You’ll learn a lot more from a great professor (or mentor, or friend, or conference) o

I frequently get asked about over-abstracted CSS, and ‘can CSS be too modular’, so I thought I’d publish this anonymised email I received, along with my reply.
