Aw okee, I'll edit that bit out.

I wonder if there will ever be a pic that takes in the whole of the Shanghai entirety in detail?

Yeah, yeah, millionaires with the equal amount of debts or multiple times more.

You could always try the 3D Chinese map service system E-Dushi / E-都市 (E-Metropolis)


Here attached with my screen shots from this "Chinese google earth"


3D Map for Shanghai / 上海


Central Shanghai (People's Square & Nanjing Road)



Lujiazui and the Bund



Xujiahui and 80,000 seater Shanghai Stadium



Hongkou District and Hongkou Stadium








3D Map for Beijing / 北京

Central Beijing around the Forbidden City







There are 3D maps for dozens of other major Chinese cities available on that website.

3D Map for Guangzhou / 广州
3D Map for Shenzhen / 深圳
3D Map for Hangzhou / 杭州
3D Map for Nanjing / 南京
3D Map for Chongqing / 重庆

...etc

Is the building really called the "80,000 Seater Shanghai Stadium"? That sounds a bit ridiculous imho, why didn't they simply name it the "Shanghai Stadium"?

The official name is simply "Shanghai Stadium"...it's just local shanghainese people dubbed it "80,000 people's Stadium / 八万人体育场".
