It is an amazing experience to change our perspective sometimes on the way we see things. For example, the way we view the world today, is quite an ordinary observation. Everything is routine for us, since we walk the same roads everyday, an do almost the same things. However, if we see these roads and everything in a full picture.

Daily Overview is a new project that posts satellite photographs daily from places around the world that have been touched by human activity. The project was inspired by and based on the idea known as the Overview Effect. To sum it up, the overview effect is what astronauts experience when they look at Earth from space.
