Bordeaux. True-colour satellite image of Bordeaux (lower centre), France. North is at top. Urban areas such as Bordeaux appear grey. Forests are dark green, grazing lands are light green and crops are mostly yellow. Bare ground appears pale yellow, pale brown or almost white. Bordeaux lies on the Garonne River (blue, from bottom centre) which flows northwards to meet the River Gironde (from far right to top left). The Gironde and Garonne make Bordeaux accessible to ocean-going ships. Image taken by the American Landsat-5 satellite. The smallest visible features are 30 metres across.
