    strange… I see more hints of vegtations in the latest pic.

    This can also be due to the different satellites, as the lenses and imaging techniques can be different..

    anyways.. it doesnt seem too bad. I wonder how many NGOs actualy protested when Manhattan was reclaimed and urbanized?

    Right now it seems its scrollbars=no
    Make it scrollbars=yes
