Nate Bergey has created several data visualizations using 1,129,177 photos taken from the International Space Station. Since most images from the ISS are of land masses, Bergey found that plotting all of the images creates a fuzzy map of the world. When plotted by mission, Bergey’s visualizations show the upward trend of ISS photography since the first expedition in 2000. The long orbit lines on the map are the result of astronaut Don Pettit’s timelapses created on missions 30 and 31.
