What are the satellites in your line of sight?” seems like a question that only a space science enthusiast might be interested in but then Line Of Sight, an open-data visualization by Patricio Gonzalez makes it really interesting and informative! It’s really fascinating to see how many satellites are whizzing past us every minute – here’s the link to geoawesome visualization. Satellite gazing was never this cool 😉

I am one of those passionate "Geo-geeks" and "Geo-people" who is just too excited about everything Geo and Management. Location information and spatial technologies are just too big to take a back seat and watch them revolutionize the world. Always curious and looking for ways to innovate, I guess that it comes naturally by the gene pool I inherited from an engineer Mom and a researcher Dad.
