One world

Read the Transcript
This map is not really so much a map as it is, uh, three views from space of our beautiful, uh, and somewhat endangered, uh, planet. In each of the views – and they’re side-by-side – uh, there is a slight turning of the globe so that one sees a different part. Uh, this map or this, uh, spectacular view of the Earth from three different vantage points was produced by, um, a company called Raven Maps. Raven Maps in the last twenty years or so has, uh, made some of the most sumptuous, colorful, and beautifully-rendered maps. This one, uh, again, not really a map, but three views of the Earth is, uh, a beneficiary, of course, of the fact that we now have the ability to look back at o- at our planet from space and see it through entirely new eyes.
