This documentary, in the form of a satellite map, tracked the explorations of the famous Swedish Royal Geographical Society explorer Mikael Strandberg as he traveled through the rugged country side and heat of Yemen. Unlike most maps, this map enables you to digitally experience the expedition and zoom in close on each location while you read his reports online. I plotted this map real time from the emails he sent me almost daily while on his expedition. It was a rare opportunity to plot map as it occurred. By activating the 3D terrain mode, and using the compass to rotate and see the horizon, you can view the map with mountains that you can zoom in on in order to understand how Strandberg viewed it.
