It was 1440 AH (2019 CE). An ambitious, all-out, beautiful and a costly project «Vision 2030» has already begun to be implemented and, according to plans, will affect all major industries in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Modernization and a leap into the future will occur in all aspects of people’s lives: culture, education, construction and production. But most of all, Vision 2030 will affect the desert: as calculated, by 2025, the forecasted urbanization with an increase in boundaries of cities and their number will be about 88%, which will undoubtedly change the desert’s appearance. I will observe the process using Google Earth’s tools and my camera, comparing them with what’s visible from afar to real sites as they are seen on Earth.
