Stratocam, a program developed by former Google and Dreamworks employee Paul Rademacher, allows visitors to take their own aerial snaps with the help of Google Earth and later vote for their favorite photographs from the community of images.
Below are photos of natural wonders such as Mount Vesuvius, the Amazon and Tibet. There are a number of images displaying a more human presence on Earth such as farming plots in Saudi Arabia, the city of Baghdad and the canals of Venice.
