Timor Towns, Maliana
This image shows a river running down the centre and branching across the area. Lilac areas indicate the village of Maliana just below the centre of the image, to the left of the river.
The ETM Plus Sensor on board the Landsat 7 satellite can detect infrared radiation which is generated by any form of heat. These 'hot spots' show up as red areas on the image. They can be caused by elements such as fire, tin roofs, concrete slabs and cars.
The bright green areas indicate healthy grasses and agricultural cultivation. The pink/brown colours generally indicate bare soil.
