Tournament Earth 2015 has come to an end, and the colorful faults of Xinjiang, China took the #2 seed all the way to the championship, and a repeat for the Art Section. This year’s victory is a first for the Landsat satellite and we look forward to more great imagery from this and many other satellites and sensors during the next year. Thank you all for voting!
