Measure this (Halifax area)

Instructions: In the RADARSAT image of the Halifax area, the letter A is pointing to Shearwater airport. You can see the dark criss-crossing lines which are the airport runways. They are dark because on the ground they are smooth, just like the water bodies nearby (ocean at the bottom right and the many inland lakes). The many buildings in Halifax and nearby reflect the radar beams well, giving lots of bright spots on this image.
