Hi all.

Happy for you to use it then, but I don't want that shot getting out on the net without a proper credit.

Thanks.



NO REHOSTING OF THAT IMAGE, NOR THE ONE THAT REPLACES IT, ANYWHERE OTHER THAN THIS THREAD.
Hi Gerald.
Done.
I think you are getting carried away when I've used it to show a point I'm making with all the labelling. But who am I to say ... happy to change it for you.

Lets just say I'm looking forward to being fully complete ...

Hi Imre.
Should be next week I hope. Happy to see someone actually wants it - especially you Imre. I've really enjoyed making and revising the thing over the years for my own enjoyment. I post it up for everyone who wants it as an added bonus.

Hi Christos.
The CTBUH recognizes 3 official height measurements.
The height to architectural top is the main one that compares structures around the world. For the BK that is 828.00 m.
The highest occupied floor (I like level better) is fairly self explanitory.
The height to tip is the full height including anything on top. For the BK that is 829.842 m. For some buildings the difference between the arch top and the tip can be significant - for instance the Willis Tower (Sears Tower) numbers are 442 and 527.
I personally consider the height to tip the real height of structures but each to their own.
Hope this helps.

To all the Dubai photogs :
Could you try to get a shot of the top that may show us if the sonimometer and the lightning rod are installed - please. Thanks guys.

Cheers. No problem with how you're using it at all, but that's exactly the sort of thing (including your annotations) that could be of great interest, and if it does get nicked, at least it now gets nicked with the watermark.

I'll be taking my 400mm + 2x extender down there tomorrow for exactly that purpose. I may even see if I can convince the lovely guys at Canon to lend me something even better...

Went to Dubai few weeks ago, and no electrical equipments are allowed to be switched on while descending/ascending. How did Imre manage to take pics of BD in the plane that close? (this was ages ago)
