The Three Gorges Dam, China

In celebration of Google's latest image update to Google Earth we have added a video map of the Three Gorges Dam in China. Google normally take about a week before they port over Google Earth updates to Google Maps, so the satellite imagery will be a little hazy on this one until the new imagery appears.

The Three Gorges Dam is a huge engineering feat. It is in fact the biggest engineering project that has been undertaken in China since the Great Wall and the Grand Canal. When the dam is fully operational in 2011 it will be the largest hydro-electric power station in the world by capacity
