In this false colour swipe comparison, urban areas appear as shades of purple and white. Vegetation appears as light green to yellow, with drier areas appearing lighter. Water is displayed as dark blue to black. Bunbury, like much of the south western coast, has seen significant urban growth over the last 23 years. Residential growth has been particularly concentrated in Australind in the north, Eaton and Milbridge in the west, and Dalyellup and Gelorup in the south. Industrial areas have appeared in Kemerton and Davenport. Notice the numerous shifts in the surrounding environment from changed agricultural and mining practices. The Australind Bypass is another prominent feature that appears over the timeskip.
