Google Earth has always been a wonderful tool that allows you to explore any part of the globe from the comfort of your home or office computer.
Well, it’s even more interesting with a project that combines the Google Earth Engine with annual landsat images in a time lapse that stretches from 1984 to 2012.
This means you can select any region of the planet and see how it’s changed over nearly 3 decades.
You can see the incredible growth of Las Vegas, the deforestation of the Amazon or the expansion of the famous coastline of Dubai with their preset sites.
Once you’re in there, you can type any destination you want to see; where you live, where you were born and watch the timelapse for that area over the 28 year stretch.
You can zoom in and out and go year by year for an eye opening presentation of just how much the earth has changed in such a short period of time.
