Since aerial photography became more common and accessible, we’ve been able to see many iconic places from a totally new perspective. And if you’d like to see UNESCO World Heritage Sites from a bird’s view, Overview is just the place. On its website and Instagram page, this project shows some iconic World Heritage Sites from above. There are both cultural and natural sites, and you can see them all from a different point of view.

“Seeing the Earth from a great distance has been proven to stimulate awe, increase the desire to collaborate, and foster long-term thinking,” the Overview founder Benjamin Grant writes on the page. “We aim to inspire these feelings — commonly referred to as the Overview Effect — through our imagery, products, and collaborations. By embracing the perspective that comes from this vantage point, we believe we can stimulate a new awareness that will lead to a better future for our one and only home.”

Overview collaborates with partners such as Airbus, ESA, NASA, Nearmap, and others to bring you the stunning aerial images of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. On its website, you can find the map of places covered, and there are even more than just the UNESCO sites. And if you’d like to get a print of one of these images, you can do that as well in Overview’s webshop.

    Quito-Ecuador should be in this gallery, the first city of humanity’s cultural heritage, declared by UNESCO in 1978.
