The main aim of this paper is to discuss the formation, organization and production of urban areas in State of São Paulo (Brazil) in the variant of the process of industry’s internalization in the late '70s. As industrialization has always been linked to the production of urban spatiality in contemporary approach, the locus of analysis is the industry. Combining the method shift-share (Esteban-Marquillas), Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and cluster analysis, we noted evidence that this process has resulted in the phenomenon of extensive urbanization. The main findings of these applications (“photographic”) indicated that there was a virtual extension in general conditions of the urban-industrial fabric so that polarizing centralities and surrounding regions present locational and competitive advantages, forming, therefore, urban agglomerations in the territory of São Paulo, mainly in the regions benefiting with the process of industry’s internalization.
