POPULATION 131


Night Views

Population distribution in the southeastern United States
is shown through satellite imagery shot on clear nights in
1974, 1979, and 1989 from the U.S. Air Force's Defense
Meteorological Satellite. Florida's rapid population growth
is clearly visible. In both 1974 and 1979 the southeastern
Florida urban concentration between West Palm Beach and
Miami remained distinct from coastal towns farther north.
By 1989 urban lighting was almost continuous to
Melbourne. In 1974 Bradenton-Sarasota and Ft. Myers-
Cape Coral were visible along the southwestern coast. By
1989 urban development was almost continuous between
Tampa-St. Petersburg and Ft. Myers. The intense urbaniza-
tion of the corridor between Tampa and Orlando is also
evident. The areas of darkness in northwest Florida and in
the interior of peninsular Florida outside the Tampa-
Orlando corridor changed little between 1974 and 1989.
Growth has largely been along peninsular coasts and in the
peninsular interior between Lakeland and Orlando.
