Images from Google Earth, looking at the changes in urban growth. Biggest change appears to be from 1990–1995 onwards; basically validates the “farmlands to factories” transformation. Is it obvious that Foshan and Dongguan would become the main nodes in Guangdong?
Thanks for staying with me for this list of images. If you have ideas about how I can take this further, reply to this thread and I will see how I can implement this for future urban maps (and environmental ones).
