    Earth at Night


    I was recently showing a friend some different maps and he was extremely interested in the Earth at Night image that shows night time light around the world. You can really see where people live based on the lights at night. I've seen this image for years but when I showed it to him and talked about what was going on, it reminded me how interesting maps can be and why I went into GIS.
