Sponsored by UNESCO and Fuji Film, the work was an ambitious project by the photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand to document many of the world’s most interesting places and to examine the effects of humans on various corners of the earth.  You can view the vivid photos by clicking on the thumbnails or filter by country by selecting from a drop down list.  Over on the Google Earth Blog, you can access a link to download a .KMZ file to take Google Earth tour of the photos.
