Google Earth Timelapse

Google has decided to add a new dimension to its Google Earth software: time.

It is now possible to quickly visualize the Earth from 1984 to the present day.

This new tool is illustrating as effectively as possible the changes affecting the Earth.

Five themes thus emerged during the production of Timelapse: forest changes, urban growth, rising temperatures, energy sources (coal extraction, solar farms, wind farms, etc.) and the fragile beauty of the region. world (coastline transformation, sand dune migration ...). These themes are preloaded in Timelapse but it is also possible to type the name of a locality in the search bar.
