New Orleans. Infrared satellite mosaic image of New Orleans and most of the state of Louisiana, USA. North is at top. In the infrared range, green vegetation appears red, buildings are light blue, water is blue/black and clouds are white. New Orleans, a major centre for transport, commerce and tourism, is at lower right between Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi river. The river follows a snaking path from top centre to its delta at bottom right. The dark colouration around New Orleans shows that much of the area is swampland. Image taken by the American Landsat Satellite.
