We study the scaling regime of nucleon -anti-nucleon annihilation into a deeply virtual photon and a photon or meson,pN £ γ ¤ π,pN £ γ ¤ γ, in the forward direction. The leading twist amplitude factorizes into an antiproton distribution amplitude, a short-distance matrix element and a long-distance dominated transition distribution amplitude (TDA) which describes the nucleon to meson or photon transition. The impact representation of this TDA maps out the transverse locations of the small size
