The world's largest megacity is larger than you think

If you want some academic publications on China's Pearl River Delta region, you can fin some interesting studies conducted by researchers from the Seto Lab on Urbanization and Global Change (Yale). I got this Time-Lapse from their website and it gives a glimpse of the fast  urbanization process of this region over the past decades.

Interesting concept but it falls far short of the mark. The video covers little more than Shenzhen, which is little more than 10M out of the Delta's nearly 50M poeople. Famously left out is Guangzhou, Foshan and Dongguan.
