US-Mexico Border (732 KB) ( 1,595 x 1,925 )
This May 19, 2000 sub-scene of the US-Mexico border in California, covers an area of 24 by 30 km. The combination of visible and near infrared bands displays vegetation in red. The border town of Mexicali-Calexico spans the border in the middle of the image; El Centro, California is in the upper left. The dramatic difference in land use patterns between the US and Mexico is highlighted by the lush, regularly gridded agricultural fields of the US, and the more barren fields of Mexico. The Imperial Valley of California is one of the major fruit and vegetable producers for the US, watered by canals fed from the Colorado River. The image is centered at 32.7 degrees north latitude, 115.5 degrees west longitude.
