Image Caption: Houston Trinity delta, Trinity Bay, Clear Lake; CIR.

Color infrared photography of Houston is useful for vegetation mapping and delineating land/water boundaries. In this photo, for example, notice the contrast between woodland and agricultural land cover types northeast of the city, and the pink-toned "signatures" of marshland near Lake Anahuac north of Trinity Bay.
