WorldView-3 (30cm) Satellite Image of Pudong, Shanghai in China. This WorldView-3 satellite image is one of the first satellite images produced at 30cm pixel resolution. Pudongis a district of Shanghai, China, located east of the Huangpu River across from the historic city center of Shanghai in Puxi. The name refers to its historic position as “The East Bank” of the Huangpu River, which flows through central Shanghai, although it is now administered as the Pudong New Area, a state-level new area which extends all the way to the East China Sea.

The traditional area of Pudong is now home to the Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone and the Shanghai Stock Exchange and many of Shanghai’s best-known buildings, such as the Oriental Pearl Tower, the Jin Mao Tower, the Shanghai World Financial Center, and the future Shanghai Tower. These modern skyscrapers directly face Puxi’s historic Bund, a remnant of a former foreign concessions in China. The rest of the new area includes the Shanghai Expo and Century Park, Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park, Shanghai’s international airport, the Jiuduansha Wetland Nature Reserve, and a planned Disney resort.
