Time Lapse Shows The Rapid Expansion Of Dubai’s Coast
World

Dubai has developed into possibly the coolest city in the world, and it wouldn’t be too far off to say that it happened nearly overnight.

A time lapse, courtesy of Google, shows a satellite image of how rapidly the coast of Dubai has expanded.

The time lapse originally shows what the coast looked like in 1984, and then goes through a year-by-year progression from 2000 through 2012.

Dubai’s coast is now known for its spectacular designs of land etched into the water that, as shown through these images, can be seen from outer space.

Chcek out this gif of the Dubai coastal expansion below!
