The Timelapse function in Google Earth, which combines 24 million satellite images from the past 37 years and that allows you to see how some geographical areas have evolved over time, is not new (dates back to 2017), but Google is continuously working to make this function more usable.
The novelty recently announced in a blog post by Rebecca Moore – Director, Google Earth, Earth Engine & Outreach – is to put the functionality of culture on climate change at the service. The researcher found herself among those displaced by the devastating fires that devastated California last year and, even more aware of the issue, she decided to cooperate with CREATE Lab of Carnegie Mellon University, with which Google had created the timelapse function of Google Earth. for make this tool even more meaningful.
Now they are available 5 virtual thematic trips which, thanks to the timelapses of Google Earth, allow you to have a more concrete idea of what climate change and the impact of man on the earth’s ecosystem mean: A fragile beauty, Forest transformation, Global warming, Sources of energy , Urban expansion.
Each thematic time travel is accompanied by a discascalia that helps to better grasp the problem and to correlate different aspects of the changes taking place on the map.
We just have to wish you ‘Have a good time travel‘.
