Google Timelapse Shows How Places Have Changed Since 1984

Most people would agree that three decades is a generation and that change is inevitable from generation to generation. This generation has seen the advent of exponential technological growth to the point where we hold our lives in our hands. Google, founded in 1998, is definitely responsible for a chunk of this growth. Google Earth, an offering from the tech giant, allows the user to travel anywhere on Earth without leaving the comforts of their home. This platform has just been updated and now offers a new feature called Timelapse, allowing any user to see how a place has transformed over the last 32 years. By sourcing from over five million satellite images that were taken from five satellites between 1984 and 2016, you can search, pan and zoom on these videos. You can try and make your own here.
