Berlin. SPOT-1 satellite image of Berlin, capital of Germany. The image approximates to true colour. North is at the top. The path of the Berlin Wall (knocked down in 1989) is seen as a sandy line running across the top and bottom but disappearing in the city centre. The pale green patch in the middle is Tempelhof Airport. At lower right is Schonefeld Airport, formerly in East Germany. At upper right is a large development of tower blocks built in the eastern sector. Berlin was divided in 1949 after the end of World War II. The city was reunified in 1990. Image taken by the French satellite SPOT-1 in August.
