Image Caption: Almost all of southern Louisiana (30.5N, 92.0E) can be seen in great detail in this single view from space. The rich river bottom land flanking both sides of the Mississippi River and the patchwork mosiac of agricultural fields of the farms stand out. The lush vegetation of the marshlands and bayous can also be seen. New Orleans, on the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain and the vehicle causeway also stand out in good detail.
