A satellite image is a picture of the land,
it can show you how the place looks like fromv
high above. If you were looking for a lost hiker, it would be better it you
use a Topographic map, because it will show you, how high
or low the hiker is. A satellite image shows you how the land looks like from
high above. It can show you a picture of all around the world. Satellite images are pictures of the world
or maybe just one place. If you were to look for a lost hiker, it would be better to
use a topographic map, because it will show you how high or low the person is. Then when you find out the elevation, you can find him. Sea level is 0 degrees. It can change when you
go to a different place. It's not always the same.
On a topographic map you can find the highest elevation by
looking at the greatest number next to a contour line. A topographic map is a type of map characterized by large scale detail.
The elevation and steepness is shown with contour lines and numbers.
A Satellite map is a picture of a specific area of land that can show you
how it looks or the shape of the place. http://goanimate.com/movie/0eWvRTgucmzk?utm_source=linkshare
