Switzerland - May 17th, 2010

This orthorectified image shows Switzerland. Switzerland is located in central Europe. It has an area of 15,940 sq mi (41,285 sq km) and a population (2009 est.) of about 7,739,000. Its capitals are Bern (administrative) and Lausanne (judicial). The population is German, French, and Italian. Languages are German, French, Italian, Romansh (all official, with Romansh used locally).

Switzerland is divided into three regions: the meadow-covered Jura Mountains; the central Mittelland, a rich agricultural and urbanized area; and the lofty crags of the Alps. The Alps are visible in the lower half, with Lake Geneva at the center left on the French border and Lake Neuchâtel visible at the top left upon opening the full image.
