DEIMOS-2 Image of the Week (acquired 30/5/2015): Vancouver

This image shows the city of Vancouver, located in British Columbia, Canada. A large part of Vancouver’s harbor is visible in the image’s center as well as the multi-purpose stadium BC Place, located at the north side of False Creek (bottom left). The stadium served as the main stadium for the 2010 Winter Olympics and 2010 Paralympics which Vancouver hosted. The Canada Place, looking like a ship, can be seen at the image’s upper left. This iconic complex hosts a convention center, an hotel and a ferry terminal. Vancouver is the most densely populated Canadian municipality and is known as an urban center surrounded by nature. The city is consistently named as one of the top five worldwide cities for livability and quality of life.
