Edmonton is the capital of Alberta and home of the West Edmonton Mall (reported to be the largest shopping mall in the world). In this view, the city is located near the center of the image, and is surrounded by large agricultural developments. The northeasterly flowing North Saskatchewan River cuts right through the center of the city. Canadian Highway 16 (light-colored, linear feature) is the major east-west roadway that passes through the northern section of Edmonton. Numerous lakes (darker, irregular shaped features) of various sizes can also be seen throughout the landscape.
