SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Thirty-seven images acquired by the Landsat 8 satellite are being featured in a new art exhibit from the U.S. Geological Survey’s EROS Center.

Millions of satellite images collected at the federal repository north of Sioux Falls help document forest fires, droughts, hurricanes, tsunamis and other calamities, but the ones featured in Earth as Art 4 were chosen because of their artistic qualities. The newest edition features colorful images from southern Malawi, the Nile River and the Sahara Desert.

The entire collection can be accessed and downloaded at the Earth as Art 4 website. The collection has also been produced as a traveling exhibit, with its first venue being USGS Headquarters.
