The phenomenal change that Shenzhen went through over the past 30 years is an exceptional one not just in the history of Chinese cities, but also on an international scale. Every person who took part in the planning, design, and construction of Shenzhen should feel proud for this achievement. To better capture the developmental history of Shenzhen in the past 30 years, our team has chosen to use the technology of animated maps to show the formation of the "Village in the City" and other urban development over the expanse of the past 30 years. Technologically speaking, the "Shenzhen 30" uses Google Earth satellite images taken from 1987 to 2017, processed by ENVI and ArcMAP to increase the visibility of different structures on the map. The map can be presented automatically in both web browsers and mobile platforms. The reader can both look into the high-quality images and also compare them to other years of the same areas. The automatic presentation lasts for about one minute, and is available in both English and Chinese.
