Urbanisation in China. Animation showing the urban growth around the Pearl River Estuary in southern China between 1973 and 2001. The animation is created from a series of Landsat satellite images. The government established Special Economic Zones in the area, particularly in Shenzhen, just to the east of the estuary. This created rapid urban growth of more than 300% between 1988 and 1996.
