Animation showing urban growth in Dhaka, Blangladesh from 1972 to 2001.  The animation starts with a global view over India using Terra-MODIS 30km. true color data.  The animation then zooms down to Terra-MODIS 1km. data over Bangladesh, and dissolves into the 12-28-1972 Landsat-1-MSS data of Dhaka.  Dhaka can then be seen growing to its present day size by first showing the 2-13-1989 Landsat-5-TM image which then dissolves into the final 1-29-2001 Landsat-7-ETM+ image.    Animation showing urban growth in Dhaka, Blangladesh from 1972 to 2001.
