Thanks to Google Earth, almost every corner of our planet can be discovered from a wide variety of perspectives. So far, however, there have only been current images, but no photos from the past. Now Google has given the map software the biggest update in recent years: a timelapse function with satellite images from the past 37 years.
Uncover trends in South Africa's cloud market to help you prepare for your cloud migration. With the help of 24 million new satellite photos from 1984 to 2020, Google is promising a completely new visual experience: Timelapse in Google Earth.
With the new feature, Google wants to enable users to better understand the changes in our planet. You can use the search bar to go to any location on the planet and see how it is changing in fast motion.
With the timelapse function, Google Earth impressively shows how coastlines are changing, megacities are growing or deforestation is progressing in rainforests. In this way, the rapid environmental changes of the last few decades should become less abstract and visible to everyone. But also fascinating natural phenomena often only become visible in fast motion.
