As you have hopefully already noticed, these maps were not generated at the same scale. That means, in terms of area, ‘small’ cities may appear big and ‘big’ cities may appear small. Be sure to pay attention to each map’s scale bar to get a grasp of what sort of spatial coverage you’re looking at in each map.

We’ll get into area and other geographic comparisons at another time.

 Post-Publication Note (2014/10/01): 

  • While, as of the date of this post (September 30, 2014), the Miami-Dade County municipal dataset was the most updated version available from the county, it is still a bit dated (last updated May 2012). As one can read in the comments section below, shortly after publication of this post, it was brought to my attention that there have been some annexations that have effectively changed the boundaries of some municipalities. I hope to address those boundary changes in future posts. Miami-Dade County documents the boundary changes of the last decade on the “Incorporation & Annexation” section of its website.

  2. This is interesting. Is the dis-jointed nature of these cities typical for a metro area in the US? Also, who manages and administers all the “grey areas” such as the little square in the northwest corner of Coral Gables affectionately referred to as “little gables”. You should ad an “all other” map

  3. El Portal’s border’s are different now; we just completed an annexation from the county. There is no doughnut hole, and the block of UMSA to the southeast is El Portal now.

    • Very interesting. Thanks for letting me know, El Portal Councilman, Adam Old.

      When did the annexation happen? Are there any publicly available documents explaining the annexation proceedings and formal transfer of land from the county?

  4. The Death and Life of that (Great?) American City, Islandia will be addressed another day, Thom . . .
