Space Imaging

The top ten Ikonos satellite photos of 2003 are worth a look. Bourtange, Netherlands is particularly attractive from space.

This one-meter resolution satellite image was collected by Space Imaging's IKONOS satellite on Sept. 20, 2003. The image shows Bourtange (originally Bourtanger), a 17th century, star-shaped fortress located approximately 26 miles (42 kilometers) southeast of Groningen, Netherlands. Bourtange—from the root word ‘tange,' meaning a sandy ridge in the moors— is Europe's largest peat moor and was constructed during the Eighty Years' War.
