Image Caption: STS073-750-029 Gainesville, Georgia, U.S.A. October 1995
Featured in this color infrared photograph are Lake Sidney Lanier and Gainesville, which lie approximately 50 miles (80 kilometers) northeast of Atlanta. Color infrared film (showing green vegetation as red hues) helps to discriminate land-water boundaries; e.g., using color infrared film in this photograph the extensiveness of surface water is much easier to discern than in photograph STS073-708-014, a noninfrared color film product of the same general geographic area. Forested lands (darker red) and agricultural field patterns (lighter red) are also easier to discriminate using color infrared film. Several manmade features are visible--Interstate Highway 985 east of Gainesville; U. S. Highway 23, which parallels Interstate Highway 985 in some areas; and a thin, linear power line right-of-way through the southern Chattahoochee National Forest (lower left).
