Seaports generally are built near the end of large rivers and/or in natural harbors, which occur all over the world. Many of the great cities of the world, such as New York City, Hong Kong, and Singapore (to name just a few) began their ascent as seaports, while others such as Los Angeles developed their ports later. The world's largest seaports handle almost unimaginable quantity of cargo, both in container and bulk form, and there is typically massive investment in ground transport infrastructure to support them. Visually, they can be quite compelling, especially the facilities for handling the giant containerships which can hold billions of dollars of cargo and are loaded and unloaded in hours. To easily gain an aerial perspective of some of the world's most notable seaports and harbors, ranging from historic harbors of Southern Europe to the giant container ports of Southeast Asia.
