Space Imaging has announced its top 10 images from the IKONOS satellite taken during 2003. This image is El Capitan, Yosemite National Park, California. The landmark is named 'Shooting Star' by native Americans and reaches 1,097m from the valley floor. Satellite imagery is being considered to assist the National Park Service with vegetation mapping and analysis, resource management, interpretation services, perimeter security, traffic and concessions management, and general park operations.
