Google Earth Timelapses
Download the MP3
The Google Earth website has always been a wonderful way to explore any part of our world using your home or office computer.
A project that combines the Google Earth Engine with annual satellite images to create time lapse videos stretch back from 1984 make it even more interesting.
It allows you to select any location in the world and watch how it has changed over three decades.
You can watch the insane growth of Las Vegas, the unfortunate deforestation of the Amazon or the development of the amazing coastline of Dubai using the preset sites.
Because you can examine any location you want, you can checkout where you live, where you were born and view the time-lapse for that area over a long stretch of time.
The site allows you to zoom in and out and manually go year by year for a presentation of just how much the earth has changed in a very short period of time.
