Vienna seen from space. Satellite image showing Vienna and its surroundings. Vienna (upper left, brown) is the capital city of Austria, and lies largely on the southern banks of the River Danube. Near the city, the river is seen in two parallel sections; the upper section was added to ease the flow of river traffic. Vienna's airport may be seen at centre right. The land surrounding Vienna is low-lying and relatively flat - ideally suited to strip farming techniques. The dark land on the far left edge shows the start of the foothills of the Alps. The data for this image were gathered by a Landsat satellite.
