Flying the flag for New Zealand

An image of the ribbon-like Rakaia river in New Zealand has won an online vote for one company’s best satellite image of 2011.

The river, shown in March 2011, runs for about 150km to the Pacific.

Commercial satellite imaging firm DigitalGlobe invited Facebook users to choose its best image of last year.

The picture of the twisting river beat other striking images of Ground Zero in New York, and Palm Island, Dubai, to claim the top spot.

NZ South Island, namely Christchurch could do with being put on the map for happier reasons than that of late.

Well done NZ 🙂
