This image focuses on the city of Utrecht (upper left corner) and three nearby rivers, in the Netherlands. Utrecht is the capital and most populous city of the Dutch province of Utrecht. It is located in the eastern end of the Randstad, and is the fourth largest city of the Netherlands, with a population of 300,030 in 2009.

The three rivers crossing the image more or less horizontally, south of Utrecht, are the Lek River, Waal River and Maas River. Upon opening the full image, the Linge River can also be observed as a thin, curving line between the Lek and the Waal.
