Wide-swath View of the United Kingdom – September 25th, 200951.5N 0.1W
The main image here is an orthorectified wide-swath ASAR (radar) image of three of the four countries in the United Kingdom: England, Scotland and Wales. It is possible to observe this large area due to the fact that the swath is five times wider than a normal IMM image.
The close-ups, on the other hand, concentrate on smaller sections of the countries. The first close-up shows the mountainous coastline and lochs of northern Scotland.
The second shows the capital city of London, England on the Thames River. Some ships can be seen in the Thames Estuary.
Finally, the third close-up depicts the River Severn flowing into the Bristol Channel near the city of Cardiff, Wales.
