The north-south border between the Brazilian states of Bahia (right) and Tocantins (left, above) and Goias (left, below) appears as a line running down the left side of the image.

Tan agricultural areas stretch eastward into the state of Bahia from the border, while the terrain on the Tocantins and Goias side is bright green. In the agricultural areas, both rectangular and circular fields can be seen upon opening the full image.

The border actually runs along the edge of a 800 to 1000 meter high plateau in Bahia. The states of Tocantins and Goias lie below, after a drop-off of 200 meters.
