The DigitalGlobe Best of 2012 portfolio assembles the top picks from the company that is known for its specialization in satellite imagery and geospatial information. The photos are reminiscent of what one may find on the Google Earth tool, only with far more precision.

These DigitalGlobe snapshots showcase the beauty of Nevada's Burning Man Festival, New Mexico's Space Shuttle Endeavour from the viewpoint of a 747, North England's Mine Sculpture and Japan's exploding Mount Fuji. The aerial perspective is an undeniable rarity, displaying the natural and human-made sites in a manner that few have been able to see, let alone share at the click of a button with friends and family via e-mail and social networks.
