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.

USA and Canada - October 13th, 2010

This image shows portions of eastern Canada and the northeastern USA. The dark blue body of water by the left edge is part of Lake Ontario, on the border between the two countries. The series of long, thin, parallel lakes to the south of Lake Ontario are the Finger Lakes of New York State, USA.

Extending diagonally to the northeast from Lake Ontario is the Saint Lawrence River. It passes the cities of Montreal and Quebec City on its way to the Gulf of Saint Lawrence (not visible here). Another city, Ottawa can also be observed west of Montreal, on the Ottawa River, one of the Saint Lawrence’s tributaries.

Moving southeast to the coast of the USA, the cities of Boston, Providence and New York can be seen as well. Boston is situated on the coast above the hooked peninsula of Cape Cod; Providence is south of Boston by the shores of a series of bays, and part of New York city can be observed by Long Island at the center of the bottom edge.

Canada and USA - August 29th, 2010

The medium blue body of water on the left side of this image is Lake Ontario, on the border of the USA and Canada. The northeastern tip of Lake Huron can also be seen just below, along the left edge. South of Lake Ontario are several long, thin, parallel lakes known as the Finger Lakes (best observed in the full image) in New York State, USA.

The Saint Lawrence River runs out of the eastern end of Lake Ontario and passes the cities of Montreal and Quebec City on its way to the Gulf of Saint Lawrence (upper right quadrant). There, it can be seen releasing tan sediments into the gulf.

The city of Ottawa can also be observed west of Montreal, on the Ottawa River, one of the Saint Lawrence’s tributaries. The two rivers converge by Montreal.
