Using Satellite Images to Connect Local to Global
Using Descartes Labs you can search Landsat 8 imagery to find similar images around the earth. For instance you can click on a wind tribune and find others around the world. However the image should be sharp I guess.
I tired to find similar imageries to a city from Southern Turkey. One can see similar results from all around the world.
Only when we start thinking out of borders we will find more common spaces.
