Italy - June 11th, 2009

The River Po runs in a wavy black line across the top edge of this orthorectified, projected ASAR image of northern Italy.

Below, another straighter, lighter line bisects the image: the motorway connecting four Italian cities. These populated areas appear as rounded white patches, and are, from left to right, Parma, Reggio nell’Emilia, Modena and Bologna.

South of those cities are the peaks of the Apennines, occupying most of the lower half of the image. In the full image, the cities of Prato (center right) and Pistoia (center left) are visible at the bottom edge, at the foot of the range.
