TimeLapse: 30 years of Earth’s evolution viewed from the sky

The conquest of space is not new, today many satellites are present around the globe, some of them are specially made to take photos. Google and NASA have teamed up to let us follow the evolution of our planet over the last 30 years, a project that is called Timelapse.

Timelapse is an online tool that helps you discover the evolution of many cities like Las Vegas, Dubai or Colombia glacier that have been transformed because of climate and demographic change.
This timelapse from 1984 to 2012 captures the rapid growth of the world over the past three decades. Each frame of the timelapse map is constructed from a year of Landsat satellite data, constituting annual 1.7-terapixel snapshot of the Earth at 30-meter resolution.
