The Age of Megacities

The_Age_of_Megacities_-_2014-10-15_01.58.03“The Age of Megacities”, an engaging Esri project, maps the growth of ten global megacities by examining the expanding urban footprint of each city over the past 100 years. The Esri team has selected 10 international cities to show the wind-whistling clip of modern development.

For each of the megacities you can view a series of map overlays, showing the size of the city at different times in the last one hundred years or so.
