Interactive Tools: Largest Update Ever to Google Earth Timelapse (New Imagery, Data Available)
From the Google LatLong Blog:
In 2013, we released Google Earth Timelapse, our most comprehensive picture of the Earth’s changing surface. This interactive experience enabled people to explore these changes like never before—to watch the sprouting of Dubai’s artificial Palm Islands, the retreat of Alaska’s Columbia Glacier, and the impressive urban expansion of Las Vegas, Nevada.
Today, we’re making our largest update to Timelapse yet, with four additional years of imagery, petabytes of new data, and a sharper view of the Earth from 1984 to 2016.
We’ve even teamed up again with our friends at TIME to give you an updated take on compelling locations.
To view the new Timelapse, head over to the Earth Engine website.
You can also view the new annual mosaics in Google Earth‘s historical imagery feature on desktop, or spend a mesmerizing 40 minutes watching thisYouTube playlist.
