Brazil-Bolivia border (2,142,238 bytes) ( 2,832 x 2,982 )
The river-delineated border between western Brazilís Acre province (upper left), and northwestern Boliviaís Pando Department (lower right), demarcates a remarkable difference in land use and development practices. Brazil has opened up this part of the rain forest to farming and settlement, producing the herringbone pattern of forest cutting. This part of Bolivia, on the other hand, preserves its native rain forest, untouched by development. The image was acquired July 2, 2008, covers an area of 42 by 45 km, and is located at 10.3 degrees south latitude, 67.2 degrees west longitude.
