The North American Urban Landscape. North America’s urban landscape has been shaped both by colonization and by industrialization.

The growth in automobile ownership in the U.S., the new infrastructure systems, and the long-term home financing, as well as the tremendous amount of annexations of territory from surrounding counties, resulted in a dramatic spurt in suburban growth (Figure ).Thus, sprawl is endemic to North American density and single-family suburban development is a.

North America’s cities themselves have also changed over time. The traditional North American city had a core commercial area, called the central business district (or CBD), surrounded by worker’s homes.

Density was generally highest near the city center and decreased as you traveled outward away from the urban center and into the rural areas. Biodiversity conservation programs in North American cities are enhanced by a long tradition of urban wildlife and urban forestry programs run by state/provincial and local governments.

These programs have resulted in habitat conservation and restoration projects, tree planting and urban greening efforts (McPhearson et al. ), and efforts Cited by: 4. The eminent architectural historian Spiro Kostof presents a landmark examination of urban form and development.

North America is divided into a number of physical regions with distinct landforms. The western part of the continent is marked by north-south mountain ranges in the Rocky Mountains and Pacific Mountains and Valleys physiographic provinces, with the Intermontane Basins and Plateaus in between.

The eastern portion of North America is defined by the ancient Appalachian Highlands, a mountain. Each of the cities above is represented by a polar histogram (aka rose diagram) depicting how its streets orient.

Each bar’s direction represents the compass bearings of the streets (in that histogram bin) and its length represents the relative frequency of streets with those bearings. For example, in Manhattan we can clearly see the angled, primarily orthogonal street grid in its polar.
