The main image here is an orthorectified wide-swath ASAR (radar) image of northern Portugal and northwestern Spain. The swath is five times wider than a normal IMM image, making it possible to observe larger areas.

The close-ups, on the other hand, examine smaller sections of the original image. One focuses on the city of A Coruña, the second largest city in Galicia in northwestern Spain. A Coruña is a busy port located on a promontory in the entrance of an estuary in a large gulf on the Atlantic Ocean.

The other close-up shows the city of León, the capital of León province in the autonomous community of Castile and León, in northwest Spain. The city is located below the Cantabrian Mountains.
