Seth Dixon's curator insight, December 31, 2013 11:34 AM

As we reflect on 2013 and prepare for 2014, I've compiled 35 post that were helpful to me in my classroom (see page 1 and page 2).  These are resources that I enjoyed curating or producing.  They might not be the best or the most important for your particular interests, but I look forward to continue curating this site and sharing valuable tidbits to geography educators in 2014.

Nancy Watson's curator insight, January 3, 2014 8:29 AM

Thanks Seth Dixon for your curating skills!

The Future of Remote Sensing?

"We are pleased to introduce the world's first high-resolution HD video of Earth taken from a commercial remote sensing satellite.

This video showcases a selection of the first videos taken from SkySat-1, the first of our planned 24 satellite constellation. The video clips have not yet been calibrated or tuned. SkySat-1 captures up to 90-second video clips at 30 frames per second. The resolution is high enough to resolve objects that impact the global economy like shipping containers, while maintaining a level of clarity that does not determine human activity."

Daniel Lindahl's curator insight, March 20, 2015 6:06 PM

This video, created in December of 2013, illustrates the first HD video recorded from a remote sensing satellite. A milestone such as this one opens tons of doors for future progress on remote sensing. 

Max Minard's curator insight, March 21, 2015 11:00 PM

Over the past years, remote sensing has established major innovations such as capturing the world's first high-resolution HD video of Earth taken from a satellite. Within the link, a video is shown to show the viewer the exact HD video taken and portrays detailed depictions of the world's surface along with labels pertaining to these specific locations. What this means for the future of remote sensing is that geographers can now access high resolution videos of any part of the world from remote sensing technologies located in space. These innovations show the bright future of geographical technologies and opens the door to many possibilities people can take to further improving remote sensing.

This was definitely an interesting reading. I believe @Spencer Levesque had a very good point. They all have similar features, but are different in little ways. And who would of thought someone came on New Years too?

I find it very interesting on how other countries precieve Santa Claus. The history on him, what he looks like, how he gets around, and what they call him. Each country perceives him differently, depending on their culture and history. His clothes, age, language, and personality.
