Panama City, Panama, Ikonos satellite image. Panama City is the capital of Panama. It has a population of just over 700,000 people and sits on the Pacific coast beside the Panama Canal. It was founded in 1519 and has enjoyed a close relationship with the United States. The construction of the Panama Canal in 1914, and then the Pacific campaign of the Second World War, led to a permanent US presence within the country and around the capital. Photographed on 19 January 2002.
