The area pictured in this Satellite Art image in northern Serbia called Vojvodina is a very fertile soil – hence the plethora of agricultural fields visible as geometric shapes, reminiscent of cubist artwork.
Also visible are the manmade waterways appearing as straight black lines – likely for draining the swamps, transportation and irrigation.
Nestled among the fields, there are a number of small towns with grid layouts. This type of city planning was invented by ancient Greece’s Hippodamus – known as the ‘father of European urban planning’.
