The Ottawa River flows across the middle of this image of Canada, between the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau. The cities appear as bright white areas. The geographically larger Ottawa is situated on the southern banks of the river, while Gatineau is located by the northern banks.

The image is  orthorectified, showing hillier terrain dotted with lakes to the north of the river, and mostly flat terrain to the south. In the full image, numerous fields can be observed in the lower half of the image.
