Very interesting and informative..really illustrates the growth of urban areas.. Oklahoma City and surrounding suburbs for twenty miles in all directions have congealed into one mass.
Can't see much change in Lone Wolf, OK... except, sadly, most of the native buffalo grass pastures are being plowed and converted to diversified agriculture.
Coincidentally, thirty years ago, Oklahoma City and Marlow's Jacksonville, Fl were vying for recognition as the largest cities in the US in square miles. Oklahoma City annexed wheat fields until remote rural areas started demanding city services.... then started de-annexing..Those wheat fields are now housing developments and small incorporated communites, some surrounded by Oklahoma City.
Dunno if Jacksonville similarly de-annex swampland or how the two cities currently rank in areal extent.
