Image Caption: STS062-081-078 Jacksonville, Florida, U.S.A. March 1994
Numerous light, linear ground transportation links (several highways and some railroad rights-of-way) converge on Jacksonville, northeast Florida's largest city. Broad, dark Saint Johns River flows north to Jacksonville, narrows along the southern edge of downtown, and eventually flows eastward to the Atlantic Ocean. Saint Marys River, which originates in the Okefenokee Swamp of southeastern Georgia (dark area in upper left corner) and forms the state boundary for northeast Florida and southeast Georgia, traverses the low-lying, relatively flat terrain north and northwest of Jacksonville. Darker areas show concentrations of wooded, swampy landscapes. Several white cloud patterns are apparent.
