The area marked with red dots, as shown in images below, indicates that the ground temperature of this area is above the average temperature of the whole region, which usually stem from fire, industrial or energy production, or high-density production and living activities.
More and more red dots started to show on the captured images and the "heated" areas continue to expand, just like a temporarily resting runner, gradually stretching his bones and muscles and gaining strength.
The following two images of Jinshan District, located in the southwest of Shanghai and to the north of Hangzhou Bay, were captured by satellites on Jan. 21 and Feb. 22 respectively.
On Jan. 21, when enterprises and plants stopping operation, workers returning to their hometown for the Spring Festival holiday, the ground temperature in the whole area was relatively evenly distributed.
On Feb. 22, more red dots started to show on the image because of the heat from the resumption of production and increase in population density.
The Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP) based in Jinshan District is a state-level economic and technological development zone, and also one of the largest petrochemical bases in Asia. As of now, nearly all of the enterprisers in the zone have resumed production.
Moreover, by Feb. 24, 347 of 414 production-oriented enterprises in Jinshan Industry Park had returned to work.

In 2018 the output value of its major enterprises totaled 190 billion yuan (about 27 billion U.S. dollars). As of Feb. 13, 90 percent of the zone's production capacity had recovered, with over 13,000 employees at work.
Currently, the petroleum and petrochemical sector, which is an important upstream industry of the national economy, has seen 95 percent of all enterprises having resumed production.
