Stereo image of Bolivia's Camargo syncline
Stereo image of Bolivia’s Camargo syncline created using two Landsat TM images (bands 5,4,2) acquired one year apart. Vertical exaggeration is 10x.

This is a perspective view of the Camargo syncline in central Bolivia. It was created from a true stereo pair of images taken one year apart (June 6, 1985 and June 16, 1986) in Landsat TM channels 5,4,2. Landsat imaged the area from slightly different angles. The two different locations of the satellite act just like your two eyes, which are separated by a small distance. Combining the two images with a terrain model allows the creation of a stereo image. The vertical scale in this image has been exaggerated by about a factor of 10.
