Palm Islands, Dubai, UAE
 (JPG) (700,725 bytes) ( 2,368 x 3,020 )
The Palm Islands are artificial islands in Dubai, United Arab emirates on which major commercial and residential structures are being built. Palm Jumeirah was the first completed, followed by Palm Jebel Ali. The third, Palm Deira, is still under development. All together the three islands will add 520 km of beaches to the city of Dubai. To the north is The World, an archipelago of 300 islands constructed in the shape of the world map. Each island is individually for sale, and over two-thirds have been sold for residential and commercial use. The image is a mosaic of two scenes, acquired November 17 and December 10, 2008. They cover an area of 16.6 x 21.2 km, and are located near 25.1 degrees north latitude, 55.4 east longitude.
