It’s neat to see the growth of the trees since 1910!

30 year timelapse of Edmonton

Today’s Edmonton | Then & Now post is a special one. Google, in partnership with U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), NASA and TIME, combined 30 years of satellite imagery to create a stunning timelapse map of the Earth!

Above is a screen capture of Edmonton’s growth since 1984. Two of the most notable features I see are the urban sprawl, and the building of Anthony Henday Drive. What do you notice?

You can view this and other significant areas on earth; including the Dubai Palm Islands, and the Deforestation of Brazils Rainforests here: http://earthengine.google.org/#timelapse/v=53.53131,-113.40686,9,latLng&t=2.80
