Caption: Rio de Janeiro. True-colour satellite image of Rio de Janeiro (Rio) in Brazil. North is at top. Rio (at centre right) is just to the north of the mountainous Tijuca Forest (green, lower frame). Rio's statue of Christ (not seen here) is on Corcovado Mountain in the eastern Tijuca. Sugarloaf Mountain is on the forested peninsula east of the Tijuca. At upper right is Guanabara Bay and the Atlantic Ocean is in the lower frame. Rio is a major transport and manufacturing centre; financial services and tourism are also important. Image taken by the French SPOT-3 satellite in September.
