This is a very amazing visualized global ship traffic map for me that I can’t help to ask: How come the world is so occupied? The ocean part of the world is such a densely waived network, a part that is always neglected by our people who lives in the land all time, is carrying so many mysterious journeys day and night. This is a symbol of global capitalization.

But with the direct visual comparison among Paris and Berlin, Shanghai does look like a busy city with growing economics..
