Here is a cropped view from the 99mb .tif file that shows the kingston area in 2012 october
from left to right are:
trenton, belleville, napanee, kingston, gananoque, brockville, ogdensburg
To the top are perth & smith falls
to the bottom right is watertown

I’m still trying to get a better resolution version

I think I can identify verona, hartington and harrowsmith.
That might be colebrook and yarker
Then that would be camden east and newburgh and maybe the strathcona paper centre facility

The blob down near the bottom would be picton
And we’ll need Susan’s help in identifying the various blobs west of kingston along the shoreline.
