St.Louis before the 1993 floods. Satellite view of the area around the north of St.Louis. The city is the purple/grey area near the bottom centre of the frame, and most of the lower left quadrant is filled with suburbs. The city's airport is just left of centre. The river running from top left to bottom right is the Mississippi, the Missouri joins it from centre left. Patterns of fields are clearly seen in the surrounding countryside. The data for this image were gathered by a Landsat satellite on 4 July 1988. Compare this with E160/099, an identical view seen at the height of the floods of July 1993.
