This APM image shows part of southern Spain. The city of Seville can be seen as a bright yellow area in the upper right corner. Upon opening the full image, the cities of Jerez de la Frontera, a greenish yellow circular area near the right edge, and Cadiz, another greenish yellow spot on a narrow spit of land surrounded by the sea, can be seen as well.

The bright green area near the shore is part of the Doñana National Park, while the greenish grey area further inland along the Guadalquivir River is an irrigated agricultural zone. In the full image, many square and rectangular fields can be distinguished.
