Land Cover of the South Atlantic States - Fine Art Print Map
South Atlantic regional landcover displays a sequence of more or less
parallel bands: in the mid-Piedmont, a belt of mixed farmland and
forest, now heavily urbanized; then, below the intermediate Pine Belt, a
similar mixed zone in the upper Coastal Plain, with cities arrayed
along the Fall Line. The Low Country of the coastal plains has a higher
percentage of forest cover, and, finally, the Sea Islands, a unique
coastal wetland province. Urbanization has transformed the Florida
Peninsula, spreading across former farmlands and wetland margins and
dominating most of that coastline.
This map covers all of the Florida Peninsula, extending west to the
Apalachicola River. In the Atlantic we include the Bahamas south and
east as far as Great Exuma Island. The Atlantic Coast is shown north up
to the Virginia state line and includes all
of North Carolina, South Carolina & Georgia; most of Florida (the
western Panhandle is NOT included); eastern Tennessee, and the eastern
edge of Alabama.
