It looked like a satellite photo to me.

Thanks for the compliment, I just thought I could save some bits by removing the blue sea color etc. and making it black and white.

So how did you take it? Was it off a regular commercial jet? It looked as if it was taken without any side angle. Did you stick your camera out the window? ;)

Yup, regular (Northwest Airlines) flight Taibei to Tokyo, altitude 11300 m [37000 ft]. I've just turned it upside down from the real way it looks when I took it out the window, apparently in an attempt to make a north=up map... and since I had already scribbled on the photo, I didn't want to turn it back right side up lest the words be upside down. Perhaps the plane was in a slight turn allowing me to take this almost straight down photo.
