A new area of interest has been developing for me. Could I look at satellite imagery and find interesting things? With a historical bent, I thought I could look at satellite images over time, and see what I could do. This is an experiment, and I’m starting with Guangdong, looking at the massive changes in China since its reform and opening. Good satellite images begin from 1980s, and I start with 1985. Witness the “farmlands to factories” and into the current Pearl River Delta urban conurbation that is probably the largest in the world.
If you have ideas about how I could take it further, let me know!
