Caption: Agriculture and desert, Pakistan, satellite image. North is at top. Desert sands (yellow, upper right) contrast with agricultural fields (green, upper left). Water (dark blue) in the fields comes from the Mithrani Canal system that brings water from the Indus River to the north and west. Wetlands and salt flats (multi-coloured, across bottom) form part of the Rann of Kachchh on the Pakistan-India border. The sand is part of the Thar Desert. This area lies south of the city of Mirpur Khas, Pakistan. This 180-kilometre-wide image was taken on 7 March 1973 by NASA's Landsat 1 satellite.
