I used to think that renders look better than the final result, but I changed my mind.

Worlds greatest development site on the planet.
I can't wait to see the palm islands when they're finished.

This is off topic, although I'd love to get the answer VIA PM or something, any word on the other palm islands, or the world? Better yet the galaxy?

Old, but still a great tour as the video quality is superb! Love the views from the top of the almost finished Burj Khalifa in this one

Dubai's Staggering Growth Captured By NASA

Investing|1/26/2012 @ 5:18PM |842 views



Incredible photographs taken by NASA depicting Dubai’s rapid urbanization over the past 11 years have emerged this week.

The stunning still images – 13 in total – chronicle the construction of The Palm Jumeirah man-made island, as well as the development of inland residential areas and road systems in the UAE’s tourist metropolis.

Taken by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) on NASA’s Terra satellite, the false-color images were made from visible and infrared light. Bare desert is tan, plant-covered land is red, water is black, and urban areas are silver, according to NASA’s website.

The photographs detail the dredging, building and completion of the palm-shaped island, built by troubled real estate developer Nakheel Properties. Nakheel, part of the Dubai World conglomerate, currently owes an estimated $16 billion.

NASA’s website explains the construction: “To expand the possibilities for beachfront tourist development, Dubai, part of the United Arab Emirates, undertook a massive engineering project to create hundreds of artificial islands along its Persian Gulf coastline.”

“Built from sand dredged from the sea floor and protected from erosion by rock breakwaters, the islands were shaped into recognizable forms, including two large palm trees,” NASA’s website said.

The stark evolution in Dubai’s inland urban area from October 2002 to November 2003 highlights the construction of several projects by property company Emaar. Noticeable, too, is the increase in red, indicating plant-covered land likely belonging to residential gardens.

When compared with another NASA image of the region from 1973, Dubai’s growth is even more remarkable. Just 39 years ago, roads were mostly absent, and development non-existent. The most identifiable characteristic from this photograph is the Dubai Creek, stretching inland from the coast.

NASA’s recent shots have been compiled into various slideshows on YouTube, resulting in hundreds of thousands of views.

Out of range of NASA’s current images are numerous inland projects such as Business Bay – a commercial development under construction in central Dubai – and Dubailand, the stalled entertainment park project.

The UAE recently celebrated its 40th anniversary on December 2 2011.
