Federated state of the eastern USA, 107.044 km², 11.478.006 (estimate 2006),
capital: Columbus. Borders: Michigan (NW), Pennsylvania (E), West
Virginia (SE), Kentucky (S), Indiana (W); Canada (Lake Erie) (NE).
Its territory consists almost entirely of a series of alteterre (average
altitude 300-450 m); the eastern sector is part of the Allegheny Plateau, the
western sector is already part of the great plains of the interior. The northern
sector consists of a flat belt that follows the southern shore of Lake Erie,
reaching its maximum extension in the Toledo area. Main river is Ohio, which
marks the state border with West Virginia and Kentucky, and to which almost all
the rivers of the state, such as Muskingum, Scioto and Miami, pay; among the
rivers that flow into Lake Erie are the Maumee and the Sandusky. The climate is
continental: rainfall is around 900 mm per year. The economy is based on
agriculture (corn, wheat, barley, soybeans, vegetables, fruit), on livestock
(cattle, pigs, sheep, birds), on forest and subsoil exploitation (coal, oil,
natural gas, rock salt), building materials) and industry, developed in the iron
and steel, mechanical, electrotechnical, food, chemical, glass, ceramic, rubber
and plastics sectors. The capital of the state is Columbus (670,234 residents in
1998), another important city is Cleveland (495,817 residents in 1998); followed
by Cincinnati, Dayton, Akron, Toledo, Youngstown-Warren and Canton.
Formed by the Northwest Territories, ceded by Great Britain to the USA after
the war of independence with the 1783 treaty, Ohio, inhabited
by Iroquois Indians, was the first stage of the US expansion to the W. Its
development had been initially ensured by the activity of various companies, the
most important of which was the English Ohio Company founded in 1747. After
eliminating indigenous resistance with the battle of Fall Timbers (1794), the
region was erected as a Territory in 1799 and became a state in 1803. It was an
important theater of war during the 1812 conflict and the civil war. Its
industrial development in the sec. XIX was swift and favored by its wealth in
basic raw materials - iron, coal, oil - which make it one of the richest states
in the Union.
City (670,234 residents in 1998; 1,460,000 residents the metropolitan area)
and capital of the State of Ohio(USA), located at 237 m at the confluence of the
Scioto and Olentangy rivers. Founded in 1812 to be the new capital of the state,
with therefore mainly administrative functions, it soon became the active market
of an essentially agricultural region; road and rail connections and that with
the Ohio-Erie canal favored the expansion of the industry, benefiting from the
proximity of the city to rich deposits of coal, iron and natural gas, and whose
most developed sectors have become mechanical (railway, automotive materials,
air), food, textile, clothing, paper and graphic-editorial. Columbus is also
home to some universities, including the Ohio State University, founded in 1870.
It also has an active airport.
City (336,400 residents in 1998; 1,744,100 residents the metropolitan area in
1997) of Ohio (USA), in the southwestern section of the state, 160 m on the
right bank of the Ohio River, connected by a bridge to the city
of Covington (Kentucky), on the opposite bank of the river. Founded in 1788
under the name of Losantiville, Cincinnati has developed on the terraces of the
Ohio River, where it is the business area, while the residential neighborhoods
are mostly located on the surrounding hills. Well connected by internal
waterways to both the Great Lakes region (through a channel that connects it
with Lake Erie) both to the southern USA via the Ohio River, served by an
excellent rail network (five lines radiate from the city) and by road and by two
airports (Greater Cincinnati Airport and Lunken Airport), equipped with a modern
equipped port and mainly used to the traffic of cereals and livestock,
Cincinnati performs an important commercial function; its role in industry is
also considerable, especially in the mechanical (aircraft engines), electrical
engineering, food (canned meat), chemical, clothing, editorial, graphic and
musical instruments sectors. The universities (of Cincinnati, of Xavier), the
museums (Taft House Museum, Art Museum) and numerous other institutions,
including a famous conservatory, make Cincinnati a cultural center of great
importance, especially in the musical field;
City (172,947 residents in 1996) of the State of Ohio (USA), 230 m on the
Miami River, at the confluence of the Mad and Stillwater rivers, 105 km WSW
of Columbus. Founded in 1796, it began to develop towards the middle of the last
century following the strengthening of the communication routes (road, railway,
inland navigation) that connected with Lake Erie. With the rich agricultural
region, Dayton became a thriving market. Today the city is also an important
industrial center, occupying a role of international renown for some precision
mechanics products (cash registers, calculating machines, chillers); the
mechanical sector in general is also well developed (agricultural machinery,
airplane equipment, motor vehicle accessories, etc.). In 1911 the Wright
brothers founded an experimental aircraft factory in Dayton; today the city is
one of the major aeronautical research centers, hosting the Wright-Patterson Air
Force Base, and is also home to the Air Force Museum, the University of Dayton,
the Wright State University and Sinclair College. Airport.
Industrial city (216,882 residents in 1996; 660,000 residents the
metropolitan area) of northeastern Ohio (USA), on the banks of the Little
Cuyahoga River, 45 km S of Cleveland. Founded in the early sec. XIX, it had a
first development starting from 1827, when the opening of the Ohio canal (which
connects Lake Erie with Portsmouth, on the Ohio River) gave it an important
outlet in the Great Lakes region. However, the expansion of the city took place
around 1870, when BF Goodrich installed the first rubber processing plants
there. Today Akron processes 40% of the world's rubber production, giving 4/5 of
the United States rubber, what earned it the title of "world rubber capital". In
the past it was one of the main centers for the construction of airships; today
it has many other industries, active especially in the food, mechanical (car
body, agricultural and road machinery, aeronautical and missile material),
chemical (plastics, synthetic rubber) and textile sectors; it is served by two
airports (Akron municipal and Akron-Canton). Akron is also a cultural center,
home to a university attended by 16,000 students; despite the modest altitude of
266 m, it was called Akron (in Greek, high point) as it is the highest point on
the Ohio canal.
City (93,100 residents; 402,928 residents the metropolitan area) of the
State of Ohio (USA), 165 km NE of the capital Columbus. Industrial center in
continuous expansion (it now forms a single conurbation with the neighboring
city of Massillon), it is active above all in the steel (steelworks), mechanical
(Diesel engines), petrochemical and rubber sectors.
