Paris, France

June 7, 2003
With its broad, tree-lined avenues, grand monuments, quaint bistros, and sublime architecture, Paris is arguably the most beautiful city in the world. Known as the City of Light, Paris is located in northern France, roughly 100 miles (160 kilometers) southeast of the English Channel. The city itself houses roughly 2 million people and the larger metropolitan area contains more than 11 million people.

In the above image, one can see the Seine River wending its way through the center of the image. The gray and purple pixels are the urban areas. The heart of the city appears grayer than the surrounding suburbs. The patchwork of green, brown, tan and yellow surrounding the city is farmland.
