It actually looks more like that than a dormant volcano, like Meteor Crater in Arizona.

London, photos by Gerson Ibias (or GersonLDN). He is also a member of SSP but he doesnt care much for posting here.










Chinese sprawling, by GersonIbias. Notice that all that green are small rice farms... instead of backyards, people have small farms in China!

Sao Paulo is amazing. Take away the trees and you'd have Coruscant.

I think Dubai is what is really starting to look like Coruscant.

Architecturally, yeah I agree. I was thinking more in terms of coverage. Dubai still has a lot of gaps to fill-in. SP just seems to go on forever.

Those Denver shots are gorgeous!!!

Okay, I get it. You mean in terms of actual density at ground level. Just wait until we finish with Miami, if we ever do with the momentum created by this most recent boom as big as it was.

Belém, Brazil. This is a city in Pará state (from where Brazil Nuts come... in Brazil, they are known as Pará Nuts (Castanha do Pará)).

Its in the middle of the amazon, as you can see in the first picture. The big river is the Pará River (yes, the Amazon River is not the only big river in the region).

Just for info, the city was founded in 1616, so its not a new settlement of evil brazilians destroying the rain forest.
