Shenzhen is a city of sub-provincial administrative status in southern China's Guangdong province, immediately north of Hong Kong, and located in the Pearl River Delta. Owing to China's economic liberalization under the policies of Deng Xiaoping, the area became China's first and most successful Special Economic Zones. In the 1970s Shenzhen was a small fishing village. The transformation to a modern cityscape was rapid and widespread. Evidence of urbanization is evident in these two images from 1999 acquired by the Landsat Thematic Mapper, and from 2008 acquired by ASTER. In addition, Shenzhen is the second busiest port in mainland China. The images were acquired on November 15, 1999 and January 1, 2008, cover an area of 49.5 x 46.5 km, and are located at 22.6 degrees north latitude, 113.9 degrees east longitude.
