This is an enhanced satellite imagery map of California based on Landsat 7 ETM+ Pan-sharpened imagery. It includes county boundaries and principal cities.
Almost all of California’s physical features can be seen in this satellite imagery map. The most prominent feature is the California Central Valley, bounded by the coastal mountain ranges in the west, the Sierra Nevada to the east, the Cascade Range in the north and the Tehachapi Mountains in the south. The Central Valley is California's agricultural heartland and grows approximately one-third of the nation's food.
The Sierra Nevada includes the highest peak in the contiguous forty-eight states, Mount Whitney. The range embraces Yosemite Valley and Sequoia National Park, home to the giant sequoia trees, the largest living organisms on Earth, and the deep freshwater lake, Lake Tahoe.
