Inverness, in northern Scotland, is known as â€œThe Capital of the Highlands.â€ The city derives its name from the Scots’ Gaelic term â€œInbhir Nisâ€ which translates as â€œmouth of the Ness.â€ It officially became a city in 2001 after competing with other locations to be awarded the status of â€œcity.â€
In this image, you can see a patchwork of agricultural fields in green and brown. Inverness is centrally located and appears dark brown and white; it is split by the River Ness.
This Landsat 7 image was acquired on July 17, 2000. This is a natural-color image using ETM+ bands 3,2,1 and the panchromatic band. Inverness falls on Landsat WRS-2 Path 205 Row 20.
