Satellite Alphabet

The Umbrian Google Alphabet

Google shots that resemble the alphabet

Some time ago, I read about a graphic designer who created his own alphabet from close up satellite images taken off Google Earth’s program. This struck me as a fun and imaginative project for the obsessive.

Searching Umbria

So for a couple of days I set about scouring the Umbrian countryside searching for letters in the landscape. Some shapes proved more difficult than others to identify but eventually I isolated the whole Umbrian Landscape Alphabet.

If nothing else it shows just what lovely green countryside visitors to Umbria can enjoy and allow you the edited highlights of the attractive scenery around abouts.

Try it for yourself and discover the letters in the landscape around your neighbourhood.
