This image shows a major river running down from the top left corner, with Cape Suai situated at the bottom centre. The town of Suai lies in the top left portion of the image, shown in purple.
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. Bare soil shows up as pink/brown. The dark blue colour in the bottom right section is the ocean.
