In partnership with Google, Time Magazine has launched Timelapse – an interactive online timelapse showing how the Earth has changed in 30 years of property development, deforestation, glacier melt and the like.
“Working with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), NASA, and TIME, we’re releasing more than a quarter-century of images of Earth taken from space, compiled for the first time into an interactive time-lapse experience,” Google engineering manager Rebecca Moore wrote in a blog post today. “We believe this is the most comprehensive picture of our changing planet ever made available to the public.”
The image catalogs are built from more than two million satellite images from all over the world from 1984 to today. Have a trawl through locations such as Dubai, Las Vegas, the Amazon, Shanghai… as well as your hometown – http://world.time.com/timelapse
