Satellite Art: celebrating Canada's beauty from space

Rediscover the majesty of Canada's vast and varied landscapes through the eyes of those who use satellites to explore Earth.

We challenged 13 organizations from across the country to create stunning satellite images that showcase the natural beauty of a region in each of Canada's territories and provinces — not a typical order for companies used to treating satellite data for scientific or commercial use.

Yet, like any painter or sculptor, the specialists who process satellite data are visual artists who convey meaning through the careful selection of colour, texture, tone, shadow and shapes.

Browse this unique collection for the story behind each image, as told by those who created them.
