New Orleans. Satellite image of the French Quarter (centre) of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. North is at upper right. The French Quarter is an area of historical buildings forming the lower half of the central square area bounded by roads and by the Mississippi River (across bottom). The buildings mostly date to the time when the Spanish ruled the area in the 18th and early 19th century. High-rise buildings and skyscrapers (down left) form the modern city centre. The white dome at top left is the Louisiana Superdome (built from 1971-1975). The area shown is about 3 kilometres across. Image taken by the Ikonos satellite on 28 August 2002.
