Caption: San Fernando Valley. Coloured three-dimensional topography map of the San Fernando Valley (grey, lower right) in Los Angeles, California, USA. This densely-populated area is prone to earthquakes. It is hoped that by modelling the landforms in the area, new buildings can be built in areas at the least risk of earthquake damage. These data also allow researchers to see how previous earthquakes have affected the area. The image was created by the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) on board the Space Shuttle Endeavour on 16th February 2000. A 1986 Landsat colour image of the area was overlaid on the elevation data.
