Ism I DoesThis Look LikeA BigAppleToYou? From 438 miles up, New York City doesn't look much like its nickname: The Big Apple. The data for this striking image was trans mitted by Landsat 4 in 1982. Sensors on board the satellite register surface radiation and can detect features on the earth as small as abaseball diamond. The vertical band you see in the image is the Hudson River, dividing New Jersey on the left, and Manhattan and Long Island on the right. New York is just one of more than 300 cities that make up Delta's world. And yours. To help young people gain a new perspective on the world, Delta is proud to sponsor National Geographic's Geoguide. We hope it will prove to be a useful educational tool to enrich their knowledge and expand their horizons.
