Super Hi-Res Satellite Image Of The Palm Island

Wow! What a nice, hi-res satellite image of The Palm islands as they were being constructed. Click on the picture above to view the exquisite detail of the photo. You can see the individual ships as they spray sand to build up the islands. The man-made islands of Dubai are starting to fill out. Some of the projects are even having people move in already. It will still be years before all the projects will be complete but the one that started it all, The Palm, is near completion. The Palm revitalized this small nation in the Middle East as the government has put billions (if not trillions) of $'s into building up the area. If you would like to catch up on all the construction in Dubai check out the links below. To give you an idea, about 1/4 of all construction cranes are located in Dubai right now.
