Zurich, seen from space. Satellite image of the area around Zurich in central Switzerland. The long, thin lake just above centre is the Zurichsee, the city of Zurich lies at its western (left) end. The white lines of Zurich airport are just north of the city. The land around the city is a mixture of agriculture (pale green) and conifer forests (dark green). The area south of the city is covered in lakes, the largest of which is the Vierwaldstatter See near the bottom of the frame. In the bottom right corner are the snow- covered peaks of mountains in the Glarner Alps. The data for this image were gathered by a Landsat satellite.
