Georgia - May 21st, 2009

Georgia is in the South Caucasus region of Eurasia, straddling Western Asia and Eastern Europe.

Mountains are the dominant geographic feature of Georgia. The most important range is the Greater Caucasus Mountain Range (above), which separates Georgia from Russia, with its highest peaks rising more than 5,000 meters (16,400 ft) above sea level.

This ASAR image has been orthrectified, removing geometric distortion. This gives a more precise view of the geographic features, particularly the mountains.

Running through the center of the image is the Mt’k’vari (Kura) River. Georgia’s capital and largest city, Tbilisi (lower right), lies on its banks.
