Seuss Landing is one of eight “islands” inside Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park in Orlando, Florida. It is based on the works of author Dr. Seuss and features attractions such as “The High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride” and a “Green Eggs and Ham Cafe.” True to Seussian style, the theme park claims that no straight lines exist in its design — even palm trees left bent by Hurricane Andrew were re-planted at the park to advance this theme. /// Created by @dailyoverview, source imagery: @nearmap

Evaporation ponds are seen at the Intrepid Potash Mine in Moab, Utah, USA. The mine produces muriate of potash, a potassium-containing salt used widely by farmers in fertilizer. The salt is pumped to the surface from underground brines and dried in massive solar ponds that vibrantly extend across the landscape. As the water evaporates over the course of 300 days, the salts crystallize out. So why are you seeing such vibrant colors? The water is dyed with these vibrant colors to reduce the amount of time it takes for the potash to crystallize; darker water absorbs more sunlight so it gets hotter and the water evaporates quicker. .

Princess Juliana International Airport is the main airport on the Caribbean island of Saint Martin. The airport is well-known for the approach to Runway 10, seen at the bottom of this Overview. Here arriving aircraft must have a 3° glide slope, flying at a shockingly low altitude over people relaxing on Maho Beach, to land safely. . Created by @benjaminrgrant, source imagery: @digitalglobe

Check out this amazing Overview of Chicago, Illinois, and Lake Michigan during last week's polar vortex. Captured Thursday by the European Space Agency's Sentinel-2 satellite, it shows the entire city covered in snow with massive chunks of lake ice floating offshore.
