The New York Satellite Map: A High-Tech Eye on The Empire State

With its sprawling metropolises and idyllic countryside, the state of New York presents a study in contrasts that has long fascinated locals and visitors alike.  The New York Satellite Map provides a unique perspective on this diversity, transforming our understanding of this vast and complex region.  As we dive into this technologically advanced cartographic tool, we unravel an exquisite fusion of science, technology, and art.

High Above: A View from the Sky
A satellite map is not your typical cartographic rendition.  It offers a view from the top - quite literally - as it's based on data captured by satellites orbiting hundreds of miles above the Earth's surface.  The New York Satellite Map is a high-definition image that provides a detailed bird's eye view of the entire state, from the crowded streets of Manhattan to the remote corners of the Adirondacks.

Physical Features: The Land and the Waters
What immediately stands out in the New York Satellite Map are the rich, varied physical features that characterize the state.  The map vividly showcases the vastness of the Atlantic Ocean along the state's southeast boundary, the majesty of the Great Lakes along the western front, and the sprawling Hudson River cutting through the state.  The rolling hills and valleys of the Catskills and the rugged terrain of the Adirondacks stand in stark contrast to the flat plains of the coastal areas.  Through the changing shades of green and brown, one can distinguish between the densely forested areas, agricultural fields, and urban landscapes.

Urban Landscapes: Cities and Infrastructure
A distinct feature of the New York Satellite Map is its clear depiction of urban areas. Cities like New York, Albany, Syracuse, and Buffalo emerge as concrete jungles amidst a sea of green.  You can spot the iconic grid layout of Manhattan, the intricate network of highways connecting cities, and the scattered patches of green representing the state's parks and green spaces.  Man-made bodies of water, such as reservoirs and canals, are also distinctly visible. Notable among these are the Finger Lakes, the man-made reservoirs in the Catskills, and the Erie Canal, each telling a story of human interaction with the natural environment.

Technological Wizardry: Satellites and Imaging
Creating a satellite map requires cutting-edge technology and complex data processing.  The New York Satellite Map uses data from various satellites, including those from NASA's Landsat program and the European Space Agency's Copernicus program.  These satellites capture data in various wavelengths - visible light, infrared, and microwaves - each revealing different aspects of the Earth's surface.  Combining these multi-wavelength images creates a vivid and detailed picture that reveals features often invisible in traditional maps.

Colors and Symbols: Decoding the Map
The New York Satellite Map, like other satellite maps, uses a combination of colors and symbols to depict different elements.  Each color or symbol corresponds to a specific feature: blues for water bodies, greens for vegetation, grays and whites for urban areas, and browns for exposed land or lower vegetation areas.  The key or legend is an essential tool in decoding these colors and symbols, enabling users to interpret the map accurately.

Conclusion: A Glimpse into the Future
The New York Satellite Map is more than just a map.  It's a high-tech canvas that blends art and science to provide unprecedented insight into the Empire State.  With every pixel, it tells a story of geological marvels, urban expansion, environmental challenges, and human endeavor.

As satellite technology evolves, these maps will only become more detailed and informative, offering an invaluable tool for urban planning, environmental conservation, education, and exploration.  The New York Satellite Map is thus not just a glimpse of the state as it is today but a window into the future of how we understand and interact with our world.

Our materials are gallery quality. Canvas prints are built with high quality, UV-resistant, environmentally-friendly, fade-resistant, latex archival inks and artist-grade poly-cotton canvas. Our archival inks prevent fading to preserve as much fine detail as possible over time.


Built to last with precision around a 1.5 inch kiln-dried wood frame, a processed pine wood material that has all moisture removed to prevent further damage. Each frame also has extra support inside due to the large size of our canvas prints. Each canvas wrap is then hand-stapled with care to ensure tight corner folds and secure construction so they stay firm with tight, clean corners for years to come.

1.5" Kiln-Dried Framework

Hand Stretched, Tight Edges

Canvas material:

We use artist grade cotton/polyester canvas materials that are acid-free, specifically 65% Polyester and 35% Cotton. Polyester is used in order to preserve the durability, elasticity, and low cost of our products, yet still maintaining the natural, breathable qualities that cotton provides. Our acrylic coating further protects our canvas from damage and staining, keeping the canvas as low-maintenance as possible. Our final finish provides a Matte/Natural White look in order to maintain the neutrality of the base, so that our photos will look their best as they are stretched over the frame.

  • Composition: 35% cotton, 65% polyester
  • Finish: Matte / Natural White
  • Texture: Medium

Our canvas prints are slightly more heavyweight for a quality feel, but it is much lighter than a standard framed painting and less likely to cause damage to the wall. With a medium weight of 320 grams per square meter (GSM) or 9.5 ounces per yard squared (OSY), our canvas is made to be just sturdy enough while still keeping the material light and flexible. There are 470 microns which measures the diameter of the fibers, making it about 7 times thicker than the average human hair! This thickness gives our canvas the durability it needs as well as the unique texture that accompanies canvas.

  • Weight: 9.5 osy / 320 gsm
  • Thickness: 18.5 mil / 470 microns
  • Weave Construction: 2:1

Clean Corner Fabrication

Printers and Ink

We have the latest HP Latex printers and archival ink to produce consistent and quality results. The inks are environment-friendly and reduce fading for up to 200 years according to HP.

Hanging hardware comes installed on each canvas wrap we fabricate. The type of hanger depends on the size of the art-piece. It may be a sawtooth hanger or a pre-installed cable bracket system for larger canvas wraps (see images below).

If you have chosen the finished back on your traditional canvas, we will cover the back of your canvas with a white dust cover. Installation is as easy as placing 1 or 2 screws/nails into the wall and then laying the cable or hanger over them. Lastly, tilt the canvas wrap until it is level.
