Canada - April 29th, 2011

Several rivers can be observed near the twin cities of Ottawa and Gatineau in this image of Canada. The two are separated by the Ottawa River, with the former located along the southern banks and the latter along the northern banks.

Two other rivers can be seen flowing perpendicular to the Ottawa: the Gatineau River (above) and the Rideau River (below). While the Ottawa River appears as a thick, dark grey, V-shaped line, the other two rivers are significantly less wide.

The bright white areas in this orthorectified image of Canada indicate the locations of the twin cities of Ottawa and Gatineau, separated by the Ottawa River. Gatineau is situated along the northern banks, while Ottawa, the capital, is located along the southern banks.

The Ottawa River also marks the boundary between Quebec, to the north, and Ontario, to the south. Also worth noting is that it is significantly wider to the west of the cities. Finally, two other rivers can be seen flowing perpendicular to the Ottawa: the Gatineau River (above) and the Rideau River (below).

The Ottawa River passes between the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau in this orthorectified image of Canada. Ottawa is the capital of Canada and lies on the southern banks, while Gatineau lies directly across the river along the northern banks.

The Ottawa River defines the border between the provinces of Ontario and Quebec along most of its length. After flowing southeast to Ottawa and Gatineau, it tumbles over the Chaudière Falls and further takes in the Rideau and Gatineau rivers.
