Image Caption: STS070-710-001 East Coast Florida, U.S.A. July 1995
Urban expansion along Florida's east coast from near Stuart in the north to West Palm Beach in the south is easy to identify as lighter, clustered landscape primarily along the shoreline. Darker colors denote nonmetropolitan areas--the water inlet (upper left) with passage through the coastal beaches immediately north of Stuart; the smaller, Y-shaped inlet (near center) at Jupiter; two lakes near the coast adjacent to West Palm Beach; and undeveloped, poorly drained swamplands toward the interior. The light straight and gently curving lines are either canals connecting Lake Okeechobee to coastal east Florida or segments of major highways; e.g., Florida Turnpike, Interstate Highway 95, and U.S. Highway 1.
