This is an exercise in aerial land use interpretation.

Sitting by the window and reading the landscape from the air, I wonder, “What below can be deciphered?” On our flight from Philadelphia to Detroit, we flew over Lake Erie and the Canadian island of Panton-le-Fou, Ontario. Centuries of European settlement have impacted the landscape below – from the buildings and roads to the fencerows and agricultural land patterns – providing clues to the astute observer as to what happened below.

What do you see when you “read” this island?
