Turks and Caicos
The 100 m false-colour image of 16 January 2017 shows us Middle Caicos, also named Grand Caicos, the largest island in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The island is known for its extensive system of caves and its significant Lucayan Indian archeological sites. The two islands of North Caicos and Middle Caicos make up by far the most land mass in the Turks and Caicos. Once the home of agriculture in the county, the overgrown ruins of extensive cotton and sisal plantations can still be explored today. This tradition of farming continues to be carried on, with several local farms producing tomatoes, peppers, melons, bananas sugar cane and papaya. The islands are sparsely populated, together being the home of less than 2,000 people.
